DW sucks

Just a little rant.Today I got DW twice on my Dub for the first time ever.Going about 70 or so on the freeway and it hit,scared the **** out of drivers next to me.As I had to slow down they slowed down on either side of me.
Im sure its from the spare tire than im running due to damaging my other one at GSSW.Not really to worried about it since im getting new tires soon anyways.But it was a good DW though.I knew what DW was so I was not really too worried about it when it happend.Does not happend at all on the streets even if I hit big bumps.

Hopefully the new set of meats will solve the issue. What size and what tire are you going with?

I had big plans before my tire situation.I was going to get LA first then a 44 in the rear with 33's MTR's.But now I have to stick with 32 MTR's.Kim was not to happy with our plans being ruined.

Is your spare in the front or back? If it is in the front rotate it to the back...should cure the DW until you get your other tires fixed

Also remember to check tire pressure in that spare, to much and it will definately cause it.

Ramon,

don't forget to change the undies after something like that.

DW, try a wheel falling off at 65! That'll scare the Arlo right out of you.

Hunter wheel comming off at 65 would suck big time like it did to Sandy on his way to GSSW.
