Why do you feel the need to judge?

My youngest brother was killed in a very similar accident almost 11 years ago. He was 22 years old. These split-rim tires are very dangerous and many have been maimed and or killed. I watched my brother die in the hospital from the head trauma and we buried him 14 days before his 23rd birthday. I am still haunted by this memory! How many more people have to be seriously injured before it becomes manditory to remove all of these rims from the road?

You can't quit using split rims until they can invent something to replace them. You can't mount or de-mount a big truck tire like you do a passenger car tire. They are very hard and have a stiff mounting bead and you have to take the rim (wheel) apart to mount or de-mount them.

I see this time and time again, with the judging instead of the sympathy and prayers for the person and/or family....whats the sense in making a judgement? It seems like every time someone gets hurt or killed there is some insensitive individual implying that the person did something wrong or unintelligent. I don't think there's anyone out there who has never made an error in judgement, myself included,so whadya say we show some sympathy instead?

I know that stuff doesn't work. We put it on our campers tire and we still had a flat tire.

What happens is the ring does not always get seated in the lock groove so when your airing the tire the ring flies off with alot of pressure & force behind it! You should always use a tire cage when airing tires! MY thoughts & prayers are with you Kerry!
