    OK Deas,

    You have done it now! You have shown a truely holy house... (notice the hole in the house)... Sorry I just could not resist the "funny".

    BUT I will assume that this incident is just a simple accident. I feel sorry for the operator.

    No longer have my D7-3T. Plan to buy a D8-2U & D8-13A in future.

    Now, I no longer have access to the D8-2U and 13A.

    Also, I simply LOVE Kitty Cats. Had 19 at one time. Not quite as many now.

    Notice the bars on the window. That tells you something else right there.

    That's what you would say is a 'genuine party crash'

    I do not know where that happened, but the bars on the windows was very common on the houses on both sides of the river, when I lived in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

    If the operator was smart, he can blame the dog, as did this truck driver.

    I'm sure it went backwards so nice because the steering tires are installed backwards in the "correct" way.

    Default Ry-ter-rong?????????????

    Hi, Cojhl2.
    Most V-tread pattern lug tires have a 'driving' and a 'rolling' direction molded into the sides of them. Almost universally, this is the bottom of the 'V' - v - to the rear when on the ground for 'driving' and the tops of the 'V' pointing to the rear when on the ground for 'rolling' - the 'theory' being being that the 'wedge' effect thus created improves traction when driving and improves the ability of the ground to grip the tire to roll it in rolling applications, such as the front wheels of a grader or on drawn scrapers.

    Just some tire genius's 0.02.
    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.

    Oh I just realized the backward comment was for the grader, not the dog driven truck. My bad
