    Ran over to South Carolina today and this happened on my way back. Pressures were good before I left, so I don't really know what happened. Where I was on 85, the shoulder was too narrow to pull off. I'm talking big concrete wall and a shoulder half the width of my F150 too narrow. I guess I drove a quarter mile before I could get over to change it. It bent the rear lower part of the fender in, I had already pulled it out when I snapped this picture. It's a little nerve racking with 8 lanes of traffic wizzing by you. Luckily it was on the passenger side, so that made it a little safer.

    Although I had everything that I needed, there are things that would have made it easier. I'm going to get off of my rear end and put the toolbox on the tongue of the trailer to carry some dedicated tools.

    It has plenty of air. Just look at air space around the rim!

    Good for you to realize it was too narrow to pull off and risk getting hurt.

    Pleanty of air just not enough Rubber. I once had that happen with a car on the trailer and had no spare. I ended up tighting up the torsion bar on the equalizer hitch and ran on three tires. worked fine the 120 miles home but I never left home again with out a spare. Glad to hear no one was hurt.

    Sorry bubber! I assume you were going for the lumber. You'll score enough brownie points to make the blow out seem like no big deal. Glad you got it changed ok and home safe.

    Glad to hear things are working out OK.

    Years ago my SIL found a old steel not aluminum toolbox thinking 4' type. There is no way you can add anything to the inside , I'm thinking it has added close to 100# to his tongue weight. Plus his trailer is only a single axle 12' with wire mesh floor. He had a pretty light trailer till he added the toolbox , his dad and myself tried to tell him.

    The chain is on these: 2" Ratchet Strap w/Chain & Hook | RatchetStraps.com

    Not sure of the chain size exactly, but here are the specs:

    Ratchet 11,000 lb B.S.
    Web 12,000 lb B.S.
    Chain and Hook 10,000 lb B.S.
    Assembly 3,335 lb W.L.L

    I really like the strap/chain combo. They are what I use on the 2032r.

    Yup, that was it. My board foot price went up with this.
