I've been reluctant to jump in on the discussions concerning blowouts but I decided to just throw this out there just for information purposes. I was an over-the-road truck driver for a number of years in the early to mid 70's. Back then most trucks didn't have power steering, some had "center point" some did have power steering and the rest were manual steering. I experienced a blowout with manual steering in Illinois on I-55. If a car had been beside me, everyone in the car would have died. The truck went to left and was uncontrollable. When I got home, I told my wife "never never never drive alongside a truck". Pass them or stay behind them but don't drive beside them!
The second blowout I had was with a truck with power steering. There was a significant "jerk" on the steering wheel but I held the steering wheel tight and steered the truck to the shoulder. All that was left was the rim and it cut a 1/4 grove in the concrete when the tire ripped off. A firm grip on the steering wheel allowed me to control the truck. Power steering saved me.
The point of this discussion is; if someone tried to jerk something out of your hand do you hold on tighter or just let go? I think some would just loosen their grip and that leads to disaster. Always be prepared to hold the steering wheel tight and you can control the coach in the event of a blowout. The second piece of advice I can offer is usually before a tire blows out you will get a warning you'll feel a wobble or vibration, not always but I did both times.
Just my experiences that I thought I'd share.
