Like I said I looked over all the tires and replaced one. The other ones didn't look bad, not to mention the car had been towed on a dolly from SD on the rear tires with nary a problem. I never tried passing the buck. In fact I said it was a lesson learned and will never try something like this again. I seen a guy with a tow bar that was ratchet strapped to the front of his car going down the highway. I tried being as safe as I could with what I had but in the end the proper thing to do was to get the right truck and trailer. Your damn right I regret it. I am lucky that no one was injured and I know full well of what may have happened in different circumstances. You make it sound like I am like meh, so what. Well I'll tell you what I wouldn't be able to live with myself if someone got killed over this incident no matter why the tire blew. Am I contemptable asshole, I would like to think not but I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion. I really tried to be safe but I am under no illusion of the seriousness of the whole event. Maybe things would have turned out differently if the car was on four brand new tires and I was driving a heavier truck, or maybe not but no matter what I'll be using a car trailer the next time with trailer brakes. Hopefully other people can learn something from this as well so more accidents will be averted.
