Blown Neon Tire

Late on a Friday afternoon we were just wrapping up the day when I received a phone call from a Traveler on Interstate 80 who had blown a tire and was traveling a great distance and needed a new one. Google and smart phones got Danielle and her car to the shop. We got the tire off and realized it was ruined but the rim was ok. A quick call to the local tire warehouse found the right size tire.
