I had something shorter stuck in my tire about 2 miles from home returning from Orlando on Sunday. Damn thing couldn't be repaired, Firestone is the only ones who had this specific matching tire, and they are proud of that one!

That song had a profound influence on me. Did you know it’s a Bullmoose Jackson song from the early 50’s?

Holy carp. Did it make a noise when you hit it? Must have been nuts.

I hit a 4x4 in my C5 at 70mph. Made a YUGE noise. Car kept driving even with the rim absolutely destroyed. I thought I could just drive to Discount Tire and get a Goodyear Eagle run flat.

Oh no. That’s not how it works. Special order. This was years ago. Love that car. Hate buying those tires.

Yea, I heard it. Front tire flipped it up and it drove it into the rear. Made a hell of a noise. In the middle of a construction zone, on a expressway. Kudos to AAA for being there within an hour. Called them because I just knew the spare would be flat as well. Had a whole 6 lbs in it.

About 3K on it. Road hazard for the free replacement. $26 all in for the road hazard on the new tire.
