    today i left my aunts house in st pete florida and after about an hour on 275 my wheel started shaking like crazy and my car started to vibrate alot so i pulled over and my drive wheel (front drivers side) tire was blown to shit so i went to my trunk and i pulled out my doughnut and it was flat and i realized my brother took my breaker bar to take his rims off cuz hes selling them so i called aaa and it took the 1.5 hours to get to me and i ended up going 55 all the was home and it took me 14 hours to make a 6 hour trip (well about 4.5 if i drive how i normally do) and it sucks cuz i just got home

    Shitty man, if I where you I would check the condition of your other tires. Did it just blow out or is your camber way out and it wore through the cords?

    always check your spare and tool condition before you leave for a long trip...

    Sorry to hear about this mang, I have been thinking about this same thing lately I have to drive 5 hours to NorCal here soon and I have 16's on my DC2 so my spare won't work since my car originally has 15's on it...... hmmmmm the dilemna. Make sure you check your tires often if you drive that much, and if you are speeding at least have tires that can handle it so you are safe.
