Thank you for sharing. I've experienced a blow out on the rear axle of my van while pulling a travel trailer and again some years later being in the blast zone when an 18 wheeler blew a tire. Both incidents I had were scary however loosing a steer axle tire in the manner you did is not an event I am looking forward to.

I run both a Safe-T-Plus and Pressure Pro System similar to yours. You applied the technique described in the Michelin video and you've done everything you could to take a bad situation and turn that into a controllable event.

This is certainly in keeping with the "be prepared" concept and lessons that we learned as kids while in the scouts.
