Lucky the tread didn't come off and beat your fender to death.

I was driving home from work the other night and started to get a vibration from the back. It made it home 15 miles without issue, but had a flat in the morning. This is what it looked like.

I actually let the air out of the tire once I got it off of the car, since this thing is an explosion hazard. I
have not had particularly good luck with these tires, but I think a pothole may have got this one. View attachment 86846 View attachment 86847 View attachment 86845

Jeez man that tire didn't owe you anything. Should have been changed a few thousand miles ago...

Agreed and I had a new one priced but I have been focusing money and time on the Bonneville. I have been debating on what to do with the El Camino as it was somewhat of a bad base to build a project on. It was one of the few that I could find around here at the time in my budget, but it had some front end damage which I believe bent the front frame horn down. Between that and other issues, I have been hesitant to put much money into it that wouldn't transfer to another vehicle later.
