So I went to the house at lunch so I could get some shorts for gym use after work. On the way at about 75MPH I see a truck tire bouncing down the shoulder coming my way with a closing velocity of about 100MPH :eek: Y'all missed me though and thankfully it seemed everyone behind me came through clean despite the tire crossing 4 lanes behind me.

how was it going so fast in the opposite direction:huh:

pretty scary situation. was it attached to a wheel still or just the tire? maybe it was just the retread that came off (still don't wanna get hit by that)

I looked around but saw no crashes. Figured a truck with dual wheels lost one. Oh and 100MPH closing velocity was based on a 25MPH tire speed (probably a bit higher).

So for the French the closing speed will be 20MPH followed by -20MPH as the flock passes :thumb:
