We were out the other day and saw a tractor unit with the front half of an extending trailer and a container and the back half fifty odd yards behind it wish we could have taken a pic but it was the other way on a 4 lane dual carriage way.

We find that if the wind is hitting us in the right direction which is about the front corner then it feels like there is a wheel tring to fall off!

I don't like driving the Hijet when it's windy. I find it quite scary at anything over 50mph. A found things improved when I changed tyres to Hankook R08. The downside is they are rubbish in snow.
