Angry Damn flat tire!

Driving home from GL Crossing got about 50 yards from the driveway and i hear a loud pop. Didn't think much of it other than "what the hell was that?" Get out and i hear the tire going flat. Look down to see a small piece of metal hanging out, but it wont pull out. I get pliers, still no go. Finally i almost fall on my ass pulling it out, and this is what i find....The can is to show size it was not in the tire

It went it long ways and pretty much ruined the tire. I was just in an accident 2 weeks ago and blew the other rear tire, which was covered, but this one wont be...Been a bad month....:stan3:

If you didn't have to call someone for assistance to change your flat tire you did good

I pulled a caliper bracket out of a tire once, nothing wrong with the tire except that the tread was worn.

i think pissed off tire workers put shit in tires sometime while mounting them.
