That sucks. Sad thing is, the car is probablly close to being totaled with that damage
Re-treads should be made illegal. I was on a Boy Scout trip last week and my troop had to borrow a trailer from a friend of the troops to haul all of our stuff. Unbeknowst to us, the trailer had 2 re-treads on it and on the 750 mile trip back home from Clayton, GA. to New Orleans, LA. Both tires wound up letting go at different times. Thank goodness it was a dual axel trailer. We had to put the spare on first and then find a tire shop in the middle on no-where to replace the second tire. Finally made it home 2 hours behind schedule. Thos damn things need to be outlawed.
