Missing tractor tire


Recommended Posts

I’ve lost wheels from vehicles twice while I was driving.  Fortunately, they were both rears, so I was able to maintain steering control.  I was thankful that there was fresh snow both times.  That allowed me to backtrack on foot, pick up the lost tire’s trail, and locate them.

One ended up quite a ways back in the woods and the other one went into some shrubbery, right next to someone’s  house.  Each wheel was lost as a result of someone (me once) not getting the lug nuts back on tight enough.   Both times, I was able to hunt down the lost tire, jack up the vehicle, steal a nut from each of the other (3) wheels, and continue on my way with no major harm done.
