Handling a tire blow-out

I saw this on Ben Rossander's yahoo group this morning, so many of you that are on both (or more) lists may have already seen this. Anyway, it's an interesting look at how to handle your skoolie in the event of either a front or rear blow-out.

I think the comment about running against the governor could be a problem for 90% of us in here. I know I'm not pushing my pedal any further down if a tire blows unless it takes the floorboards with it.

Wow great video. One of my friends got two flats on his bus IN THE SAME DAY! They were both slow leaks, first was a front tire which he got fixed. The second was a rear tire which he drove for a while on completely flat till he could get to a place for a new one.
