In other news, spotted this on my tire:



Damn dry-rotted Hankooks.

Edit: and do the flex joints go on the frame side or the axle side?
I'm 99.9% positive the flex joints go on the frame side. I'd put them up front too. Use the RE's out back. The flex joints should help with front end articulation. The rear ends seem to never really need any help with articulation.

I fear to even drive it to get it replaced. But I don't have another car to use this weekend.

No spare tire? If you have to drive it, I wouldn't go over 20mph, and make sure it's not low on air.

I don't know how the spare's doing. It doesn't look like it's ever been used. I think I can make it to the local Walmart if I limp along. If it goes out on the side roads, I'll put the spare on then.

Honestly, even if the spare is original, it's inside and covered, so not much UV exposure. It would be good to replace it, but unless it's visibly failing, it's much safer to drive on than a separating tire. I'd throw the spare on for the drive to get the other replaced and save yourself the headache.

You guys might have a point. I'll take a look in the morning. If it looks good, I'll put it on. If it looks worn, I'll give it a miss. I haven't actually pulled the cover off to look closely yet. Just haven't needed the spare, thus far, and haven't been able to afford a new one if it's bad.

Agreed! A spare that's not visibly separating from the cords is MUCH safer than a tire that looks like it could kill somebody (and I'm not talking about you). I don't care HOW old it is!
