My wifes crew got four vehicle flats with two trucks and a minivan a week and a half ago. It was freshly graded which means all the sharp rocks are in the surface.

Thanks for all the info peeps. Plenty to ponder on. Regardless of which way I go, gas, some plugs and a compressor sound like good things to have in the vehicle.

The tires on the '99 Pathfinder are almost new deep tread AT ones with no significant wear. The days of getting air in my parents car and trying to do drifts are behind me so I'd be taking it super steady.

6.4 mm, 4 mm and 3.2 mm. Frig Splinky enough questions. Bring a spare tire and a ten dollar set of plugs.

One pickup was a brand new F-150. The other two probably didn't belong there. The F-150 made the right call to drive home through Lillooet since he was out of spare tires.

I've been back and forth over the Hurly 6+ times this year, just drive slow and you'll probably be fine, but yeah, be ready for a flat or two…definitely more beat since the heat returned

I went up the Hurley end of July with my pathy (31" AT's) and it was fine. The old girl has been up and down way worse. I quickly checked out Bralorne and from what I saw it's not much of a ghost town. Most of it is still inhabited. I did find a couple of old abandoned houses outside the town that were interesting to check out.

New tyres get flats 'cause the rock get stuck in the deep tread and pound their way in you want somewhat worn but not too much worn tyres Alaska Hwy style, eh?
