Do we think that they may have been showing wear ?
LOL, Some lucky mechanic is going to have to replace 4 main tires... They may as well had blown the 4th one as well as it is no unserviceable. Also, there will be some extra inspections required on this one as well. Won't be a quick turn this time for SWA. Not surprised with this at all. I did not see if they blew a fire bottle or if it was a false alarm or what.
