Since I use my equipment pretty much every day, stuff wears out. Today's little maintenance chore is replacing the center tire of my 3 axle trailer. At the top of the photo you can see supersacks of feed; each one of them is a standard ton, or 2,000lbs, of feed. There's a total of 10,000lbs of feed on this trailer at the time that this photo was taken.
I have no idea what happened here. maybe I hit something, or somehow cut the tire on a rock or something. I'm happy that I spotted the bad tire before it blew out.

Tires are one thing that I don't skimp on, or mess around with. Having a tire blow out when you're carrying a load is a good way to spread your load (and yourself) all over the highway.
