Underside is overall pretty durable. Few spots stuff could catch and do damage, but overall I'd say your odds are decent. Give it a look when you get a chance though.



I've done a tear-down after my previous BRZ was driven into a 4" gate post / fence pole and tore it out of the ground, with the concrete base obviously being slightly larger around than I have ground clearance... scrapes and scratches, but... obviously, it probably did a bit more damage to the nose than you experienced with the retread...

no, that's the most hilarious part. they were tv/vcr combo's and vcr players. there's no visible dvd players in the shot.

here:


the street value of all that, even back when the movie was released in 2001, was literally $1,000 for the entire truck...

unless you got out of the car, and visually inspected the tire to confirm it was actually a retread, not all tire scrap is retread scrap. false info is the worst.

here's an article summary of the nhtsa's 2007-2009 study on tire debris:

and the pdf to the full nhtsa study from that article:

It looked like a chunk of retread tire that I commonly see on the side of the road, but I could definitely be wrong since it was dark, I'd been awake since 5 AM, and most of my focus was on watching for deer.

that's the whole point of that study-- because everyone blames re-treads every time there's a tire carcass on the side of the road, so they specifically did the study to gather data to outlaw re-treads because they would be causing more tire debris and ancillary damage. this is no different than stating a specific race are the only one's committing crimes(if we would just deport 'x' we would have no crime!).

the study distinctly shows that, and the debris they collected had percentages of each single-use and re-treaded tires that were equal parts of the known amount of tires in service of each type, and that retreads are not any more or less safe than single-use tires.

it's one thing to say that there was tire debris, it's another to assume that debris is of a specific type without investigation.

And when that actor died, I thought to myself, "Why the hell do people care more about this terrible actor that died?" 15,000 children die each day, but do we cry for them? No. This douchebag died in a hooning Porsche supercar, and people are holding fucking prayer vigils.

I'm already happy. It's my middle name. I asked my parents to change it, but they said they didn't want to screw up the one good thing i had going for me
