Tire blow out in my tow vehicle
I recently had a tire failure on my F250, I picked up a piece of metal somewhere. I was on the freeway and I was able to make it to the right shoulder. I started to change the tire. I was actually kind of happy because I recently purchased a Makita impact wrench and I was looking forward to using it. The jack that came with the truck was useless so I used the 4 ton bottle jack I carry with me. It lifted the truck high enough to get the wheel off but not high enough to get the new one on. The next day I went to Harbor Freight and bought a 3 ton floor jack. Now I also carry the floor jack in my truck.
Like many of us, I don’t want to get stranded and not be able to fix my own problems. Especially something as easy as a tire change. (AAA had to bail me out)
I made a video about it, check it out if you like. (The tire change starts at 1:13)
I used to that way I can fix it but now well shit I just call AAA that why I pay into it
Not putting my life out there in th e side of the road to fix a tire not any more .
