Yeah but I was thinking maybe once the tires blew something let go allowing it to roll again. I don't know. What are the odds of both front tires getting a flat while towing?

What are the odds of towing your jeep long enough to grind the rims down to nothing before noticing/making it home?

Probably pretty easy if you don't have a rear camera and are in a remote area or traveling late at night. A jeep will be inside the mirror lines of view and a flat tire wouldn't be noticeable drag.

Have you ever drove a large diesel RV? You could tow 0 pounds, or 8,000 pounds and never notice a difference. I'm not even sure the resistance of rims on cement would even be that much,

Is this where you and kickstand argue your manhoods on towing prowess and turn this thread into 28 pages?

I have not. I guess in fairness it probably wouldn't take very many miles to do that kind of damage.
