THANK YOU, Rodger. Those were both very informative to me. Very, very informative. I am always worried about a blow-out (under inflated tire!) I now have the confidence to handle it should it occur.
I agree, EVERYONE should view these films.

It looks like their web site is down right now. The video talks about how you should accelerate when you get a blow out, but there is a lot more to it. The other video talks about load weights.
You can order the videos, I think for free, from their web site. (They are definitely worth getting.)
I will keep an eye on the site to make sure the link is still working. Its working again.

Good videos. Just FYI, Michelin sent me the free videos about 3 days after my request. My dial-up (or security setup) just wouldn't run the videos online. Glad I watched & really glad I drive a Class B with visually accessible tires.
Since I'm on dial-up, I ordered the videos last night. Thanks, Rodger! Of course, we all know that Michelins don't blow out , but for those of us who are stuck temporarily with lesser brands of tires....
Soon as I get my 'new' wheels, I'm going to do some serious tire shoppng, and consider dumping the Firebooms, instead of remounting them...
BTW, an infrared thermometer is an easy way to check for an underinflated tire at each stop; just point and pull the trigger. A low tire will run hotter than its mate on the same axle.
