Default Curbs on Garden St. Pensacola, trailers tires beware

I had my first trailer tire blowout, in 30 years of trailering boats, watched it in my side view mirror. East Garden St. has some narrow turn lanes, with curbs on the median. I couldn’t delay my turn into the intersection, soon as I made the turn, I saw the tire trying to ride up the last 2 feet of curb.
Thanks to a fellow fisherman for pulling out a bottle jack and helping me change the tire in 20 minutes safely, made my ordeal much easier.

If it's a dual axle trailer throw one of these in the back of your truck. No jack necessary.
