Defense against the "Tire Devil"

This looks interesting. People out of warranty or insurance that won`t cover tire damage might use this to stave off major repair expenses. A tad expensive but the alternative of not having them would be more.

I had a blow out a few weeks ago. When I repaired the wheel well damage I put some steel flashing in the top. To help prevent this in the future.
When we get home I'm planning on putting something more substantial in the wheel wells.

Someone close to Utah might benefit. The company mentioned above is looking to expand their line to include fifth wheel with IS and disc brakes. Get it touch with them.

I sprayed mine with undercoating to seal it up. Food for thought
