For the Dually Owners

Be sure to check in-between the duals before departure. Found this on one of our cranes. Could have been bad...

I have seen that happen before and you are correct, one has to be careful and if something doesn't feel right, check it out. I have seen smaller rocks get in between the tires on dually pickups and actually tear up the sidewalls and ruin the tires.

A buddy of mine in high school had a farm cat crawl thru the holes in the dual rims and get stuck... Truck vibrated like crazy all the way to school... Things can and will happen.

I had a rock like that come through the windshield of my car about 20 years ago from a dumptruck. Lucky noone was in the passager seat.

That happened to me with a heavy truck camper in the bed. I reduced the air in the outer tire to remove the rock and got it partially reinflated with the air bag compressor. Drove real slow to a service station to get it properly inflated.
