Default Stuck on the side of the road in Albuquerque!

When braking it was pulling to the right, pulled into Loves at Belem NM and replaced both front brake service chambers. 50 miles down the road had right front blow out on tires placed on the bus last August! Coincidence? Could they have messed up something down there

Oversized tires, improperly mounted brake chambers or improperly oriented brake chamber clamps, etc. can allow the chamber or its clamps to rub against the inner sidewall.

The clamps didn’t have any tire particles on them, they were clean. This is video I’m not sure it will work or not!

Didn’t check! But kept it to have it looked t in the morning. Loves roadside came, the position of the bus was way to low so had used 5 or so jacks and then the bolts were too big for the rim he brought, he called someone else who brought another wrong rim! Finally they put on steel rim on old tire I had in storage compartment and got us moving. Still makes lots of noise down there.

We are Mesa black casino for the night.
