Had a blowout at about 60mph on our way back from tailgating a college football game. Was very fortunate it was the outer side of the dually. Was really uneventful. Heard the tire go, felt the back go down a bit, it shimmied a bit but really not bad at all. Limped a few hundred meters to a closed weigh station and changed it out with the spare. Was really fortunate it wasn't a steer tire, heard way too many horror stories with that happening.
That being said, we were going to replace all 8 tires in the spring anyhow, anyone have experience with the Bridgestone Duravis R-250? I can get them a LOT cheaper than the Michelin XPS Ribs?
