single axle. never deflated. they kept the nominal pressure of 50PSI despite wires sticking out. i cut the wires and didn't pull on them as i needed to drive to the place with replacement wheels. I can pull on them tomorrow.Is it a single axle trailer and did they go flat on you? It seems really unlikely 2 tires would go wacko simultaneously on their own. (not doubting you)
Seriously weird. What happens if you pull on a wire?
Hope Capriracer sees this one!
there is nothing more. the wires are from the tire. i clipped them before driving back and they grew longer since. i'll pull on them tomorrow just for fun of it.I just can't see these wires coming out of the tires like that. No cracking, no dry rot, there has to be more to this story.
And yeah, what happens when you pull on these wires?
many thanks for the technical info from the guru. i'll google on that more...That's a failure of rubber adhesion to the wire in the steel belt. When that happens, the individual wires "snake" their way through the rubber and eventually come out. Kind of rare as rubber to steel adhesion is pretty straight forward.
