Driving home from work, I noticed violent shake of the steering wheel up front on passenger side about 35 mph. Decided to pull into fuel station about 5 mph. Then a loud bang, truck sliding/metal on ground. First thought wtf was that, then saw folded wheel under truck.

Damn... This could have gone bad in so many ways. Truck is at local shop being evaluated right now, no call back yet on final cost. Just doing some research. I will be selling this truck that I have loved for many years, can't risk this happening again to me or with a loved one in the truck with me.

This sucks. Coronavirus pandemic now this. Be careful Tundra owners.
