OlHossCanada We had a neighborhhood dog that got cured, rather permenantly, of biting at car tires by this method some years ago.

slimvulcanrider no no no..the hole is for tieing a rag onto so that the dogs bite the rag and get thumped on the ground as you ride by and they are chasing you

wkrizan I thought that hole was there for you to try and spot when you were cruising down the road, watch it go round and round till you fall down??? I may be misstaken.

Peace

slimvulcanrider be very very careful smashing the axle with a sledge hammer...this could cause the axle shaft to mushroom....resulting in a very hard axle shaft to reinstall.

But I like hitting it with a sledgehammer. Can I still do that, even if I own too many screwdrivers? lol
