Where did this G114 come from?

Trying to solve a mystery. This tire with brake drum still attached turned up in our BACK yard. We have a state route in front of the house so it obviously came off something and somehow miraculously made it to the back yard between us and the neighbors without hitting a house. It definitely hit something which I haven't found what that was yet. I'm trying to figure out what this might've came off of. I think I may be down to a tag wheel from a dump truck but not sure if those wheels have brakes....don't think they do. What's your guess?

I'm wondering too if it could be off a motorhome? Also...if you look at that brake drum close it hasn't had a pad on it in awhile. I suppose it could've fell off a trailer being hauled to a junk yard so maybe the damage to the wheel was already done? It's puzzling for sure.

The G114 tire is a commercial trailer tire and seen on many trailers and larger 5th wheel trailers.

Looks like someone had a very bad day. Agree with posts above. Same exact brand/model/size tire I have on my 5er BTW.

Could your neighbors be pranking you? Does not look like a wheel/tire that was in use at the time it landed in your back yard. Aliens?

I would still report it to the proper authorities as there may be someone looking for proof that they got hit "from out of now where" but the insurance adjuster may not believe them (for zero liability).
