A blowout @ 65 MPH could have turned real bad real quick, glad everything turned out okay (minus the tire of course).

Well look at the kinda bright side, your gettin KM2s. How did your rim fair out? ok I hope.

Ever look at the new Goodyear MTRs with Kevlar? Just maybe a tougher tire. Don't really know to much myself about the new MTRs with Kevlar (to new). Just a suggestion. I've had 4 sets of the old MTRs with puncture proof side walls and never got a flat, split or punctured side wall. Love em! (could be pure bs luck though). If the new ones are better than the old MTRs they must be Pure Dynamite!!!!!

KM2s have caught my eye to, but I just can't get my self to change what I allready know I love.

I know Im so excited about the km2's. It's making my mouth water thinking about how they will look on the truck. I priced Hancooks, Goodyear's and some Toyo's but I love my BFG's and would just rather pay for them. This is the first time I have had an issue and I know it wasn't the tire's fault. From the size of the slash in the sidewall Im actually surprised is stayed together like it did, only the outer sidewall came apart, the inside stayed together and kept my from damaging the rim. I just hope the TPS Sensor still works in the rim, I don't want to have to buy another one to replace it.
