Here are a couple of pics of the inside right rear off of the HSM Rainmaker.
Note the depth of the tread in the 2nd pic.
It looked like an almost new tire but was about 11 years old and was a blowout just waiting to happen.
I was fortunate that it was one of the rears as I was doing about 65 when that happened. If it would have been one of the steering tires....I shudder to think about what result would have been.
Turned out that ALL of the tires were 10-12 years old, and we had to replace all 6. Cost me something like $3.000.00 but at least we were safe to drive.
If you value your life, or the lives of your loved ones, keep a good record of the age of your tires and replace any of them that are 6 years old or older. They are just not safe at highway speeds.
