I was driving my cube van, essentially a class c with cargo in it, driving down the freeway it blew the front driver's tire. My thoughts, it was going basically straight and there was a grass median to the access lane. I asked my co-pilot, "I don't want to be on the freeway changing a flat do you think I can make it through the grass". I said "It hasn't rained in a while, what'cha think?" He said do it! Hit the grass, floored the gas and made it on to the access lane. It all seemed very stable to me, just a slight pull on the steering wheel.

In my situation with a front passenger blow out, first the noise is tremendous and scares the crap out of you. Luckily this forem the topic has be around for awhile,your first instinct is to slam on the brakes which is a no no I didn't speed up I let it slow down on its on and pulled off the side of 85. Then you deal with getting a tire and looking at the damage on your pride and joy.
