That's a great pair of videos. I'll make sure that our church bus drivers also have an opporunity to see it. Thanks for posting the link.

Far better is it to dare mighty things,to win glorious triumphs,even though they may be checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much,because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.  Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)

I too think that these are great videos.  I have written to Michelin to get permission to use them in a new safety-related DVD I am producing.  This DVD will be made available for free to all RV folks. 

Bendix also has some great videos and I have written to them for permission as well.  Getting permission to use these videos is not a lot of fun, since you end up dealing with their lawyers.

The DVD will also include me two safety-related articles in a narrated slide show presentation.

Lots of work, but I think it will be of value to the RV owner.

If anyone has any other videos that they think should be included, let me know.

I've had thje misfortune to experience (2) blow outs -- two different occassions with MC-8 (rears).
I had the clear presence of mind not to hit the brakes.  All worked out well -- now have new tires.  NO Caps.
