    Got to watch tires on a car hauler they spin faster due to their smaller size . Air pressure is important .

    Drove by that on the way home this evening. Wasn't a big car hauler. Looked like one that holds like 6 cars. They had the trailer on a roll off tow truck with what looked like a Chevy S10 still in the trailer.

    They were picking up the cones, etc., when I went by at speed. You could tell it was a large crash.

    I was in Texas a few days ago when the temps were in 102 to 115 degree range(without the heat index). I literally lost count of how many trucks I saw pulled over on the shoulder getting new tires or waiting to get assistance because they blew tires running at high speeds (75 mph+) in the hot temperatures. 2 of the trucks blew tires barely 5 minutes after passing me on I-30 between Texarkana and Dallas! This is the time to keep tabs on tire inflation pressure!
