This is a little bit on the extreme side , usually change before they get that bad on ower trucks. But still holding air and did not blow out. This is a Aeolus Chinese tire , crazy the abuse they take. Rear drive axle on a tandem truck.

Looks like Rivering on a Goodyear. I would hate to run that tire at freeway speed on a steer axle. How many miles on that abused tire?

Heck...what's wrong with those tires? Still some good tread left on the outside! Just under inflate a bit to make sure it's hitting the good tread on the pavement! I would keep my speed under 85 though!

Don't keep track of miles on tires usually. But think around 40-50,000 miles??? They would maybe last longer if replaced in pairs but seems like that never works that way. Gravel and drivers going to fast == hard on tires..

In a word; Wow. I would not want to be an unsuspecting motorist on the freeway next to the truck with that tire on it when it blows. I read somewhere on this forum where someone said to always stay away from trucks as much as possible. In other words don't linger next to them for long at all. This is a great example of why I would not do that.
