The streets of Pittsburgh, riddled as they are year-round with potholes, make life pretty tough on car tires. Conventional wisdom in this town says you’ll only get 20,000 miles out of a tire before it “needs replaced.”
But this, readers, is amazing. Look here:
Have you ever seen the like? That’s what happened to my tire yesterday. I brushed the curb while I was parking my car, and I immediately heard a loud whoosh, which turned out to be the sound of all the air rushing out of the tire as it suddenly, almost explosively, deflated, thanks to that huge gaping gash.
This is the sixth flat tire I’ve had in my life, but I’ve never seen anything like this kind of damage. Have you?
