I was at work, a pretty much, normal day, just after testing the Emergency Generators, my wonderful spouse calls, says she has some "bad news". I say "what's up?" She says "Well, I think I have a flat". My wife drives a 2000 Ranger XLT, 4x4, lifted, on 32's. I used to commute to Dallas in that truck, 30 miles. I got a flat, I didn't notice untill I checked my tire pressure. Who knows how long I drove it? I had no reading on my gauge at all. You couldn't tell. I check my tires once a week, on my first day off. BFG/MT's don't squat. Anyway, I ask her, "what does the tire look like?" She says, "It's fine unless I turn right, then not so good." I jump in my Jeep and go to her. I find that there is about 4 inches of rim missing on the inside of the wheel, the tire is cut on the inside of the side wall. I ask my better half, "What happened?" She says someone cut her off, and forced her into the curb. Are American Racing Wheels (Outlaw I) that crappy, if you get forced into a curb, the insides blow out? Dang, I should have been scared, because I have the same (basically) wheels on my Jeep (OutlawII), and have hit some serious rocks with them! Can anyone explain to me why I think my, wonderful, spouse is leaving something out?

I had to help a woman change a tire, and rim, because she turned too wide and fell off the pavement, which sliced the tire, and took out a big chunk of the rim. It happens!!!!!!
Usually when they're not paying attention.
