Rock or nail in your tire?

I once found a bolt dead straight in the centre of one of my GT+4. Whack, whack, whack!

Called my father and he said don't move the car. He came and we changed the tire out in a the parking lot I stopped in.

That's got to be 20 some years ago now.

Here's an update: It stopped ticking. I don't know if it is bc the rain we have right now or if something that was in my tire fell out. All I know it does not tick anymore.
It might mean that you've worn the head off of the nail that's stuck in there. (BTDT) Keep an eye on your tire pressure.
Please begin practicing how to arrest a vehicle from speed that has had a sudden and catastrophic loss of a tire.

My neighbour (a one-time Olympic athlete) picked up a fingernail clipper in the sidewall of his Flex one day on the highway. Destroyed the tire in less than a minute. Took everything he had to bring the vehicle safely to the side of the highway.
