Easy Canyon! Your sounding like a trial attorney.
Here's what I know. I was driving on a dirt road, went out on a highway, heard the ol' tap-tap-tap we have all heard, then a brief moment of silence and then CRACK!
No vehicles in front of me, nobody around. Just a few guys in a my old Jeep not believing what just happened.
To calculate this we need to know: the RPM of the tire at the time of launch, diameter of the tire, the angle of discharge, size, density and shape of the eledged projectile, wind velocity and direction, my speed of travel or rate of acceleration, so on and so forth.
The vehicle was a '76 CJ-5 with 31X10.50X15's by Hercules. They set out about 2" from the fender flares
Nothing is impossible.
Didn't mean to get any body rattled.
