so my friend and I took our cars for a mid morning run, we went on a scenic drive followed by some highway cruising. on the return trip i switch over from the middle to the right lane with the intentions to pass an old pickup truck, im about 30ft away and his tire explodes, i begin violently dodging large shards of rubber and ruduce speed as im expecting him to loose control, only one peice made contact with me but it was the size of a basebal glove, i drove over it and hoped for the best. we pulled over and my friend was amazed by my little display, i was amazed that i suffered no damage whats so ever! woo hoo, but yea close call.

I had that happen in my wife's car once and the peice of rubber shattered the turn signal cover and completely ripped out the wheel well liner.

I am glad to hear that you are alright.:cheers:
