LOL..........caught red handed so to say!!!

Most commercial trucks require a min of 6/32 on steer axle tires to pass state or federal inspections. Drive tires (rear) on commercial require a min of 4/32 to pass. Trailer tires can run a min of 2/32 just because they are being pulled and are just really support for weight.

Did you also know that commercial tires hold 100psi or more psi? With 100psi on a hot summer day, a commercial tire has enough pressure if the sidewall bursts to shove a Coke machine thru a brick wall? Something to think about next time you see someone or yourself riding beside the tires of a big rig!!!

Lowriders are for guys who can't get it up!
Sissy's drive 2wd's! (you know who you are!!)
