Thoughtless people
« December 03, 2017, 23:49:51 »
Took a late afternoon run for groceries yesterday in the girlfriends car and a couple of minutes up the road we hear this thud and a whole heap of other noises, Kamini just about jumped out of her seat with fright and I'm like what the xxxx was that :eek:

First thing that popped into my mind was that one of the tyres must have let go as they are quite old but still plenty of tread, I get out to have a look and the rear left tyre had an 8" piece of steel reo through it :disapp: made a few deep scratches in the underbody coating in the wheel well and it'd had a go at the brake line but luckily that was still fine :sweating:

I've got to now go and get a new tyre and spray some protective coating because some thoughtless prick has left/dropped building materials on the road :rolleyes:

One of Gonz's KMart Diamondback tyres might do the trick :)

I had a bit of reo punch through the side wall of a tyre and exit out through the rim at 120km/h once.

Lucky it was the rear tyre in a work car....... :D
