Normally the Wings wait to get back home from the road first before going flat.

Suddenly, I’m reminded of Joe Sakic’s story.

Cleary’s parting gift… a slow leak

Kudos to the motor coach driver.  When a steering tire goes on a highway bus, it can be a major disaster.  Getting a heavy vehicle stopped and keeping it in a relatively straight line is challenging to say the least.  I speak from experience.

Judging from the pic, it was a rear tire. You can clearly see it was the inside of a dual and a tandem set up at that. Plus, there is an airbag suspension. I’ve never seen airbag suspension on a front/steer axle. I don’t know if such a monster actually exists. That being said, If a tire is to blow, I’d rather it a rear inside. Very little, if any, difference in the handling of the vehicle. 
I agree that it’s very difficult to manage a steer blowout. That’s just a bad day when that happens.
Just going off the pics.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
