    Balancing out your axles won't just get you back within spec, your rig will steer better, bounce less, and sway less too.

    I recommend a good tire pressure monitoring system. I found a screw during a routine inspection at a gas stop while towing 7K from Houston to Florida. The screw was on top, or else I might have experienced a blowout. Pressure was already down 10 psi when I found it.

    Having said that, I did experience a blowout on another trip. It may have been due to curbing a tire a few hours prior while parking on a street. It sounded like a boot kicked the bottom of the truck. There was no trailer damage or adverse impact to handling, just a ton of noise. My wife and I were in the middle of nowhere. Luckily I had everything I needed to change the tire, but for the remainder of the trip I was deathly afraid of getting another blowout since everything was closed. Good times.
