FLAT TIRE of HELL! need help!

got a fukd up flat out in PA on a little weekend trip...the tread just flew off the tire and apparently took some other stuff with it...the tire tread piece(s) tore out my lighting wire harness on my passenger side...as a result, this is all NOT working:
  • low beam passenger side
  • low beam driver side
  • high beam passenger side
  • lower turn signals passenger side
  • side marker passenger side

it also dented my fender a bit...heres some pics of the tire n the ripped wires, pieces of the tire UNDER MY HOOD and the messed up fender








now this is where i need some help...it tore out the whole harness...this is the good driver side one and basically what it looks like:




this was the passenger side after the flat and so basically i need the harness:



please help..if anyone has one...PM me with price...thanks!

Re: FLAT TIRE of HELL! need help!

Seen talks of this on TV before. I think it was a W5 report that sometimes places that sell tires have them sitting around for years and don't really think they have an expiration date per se but apparently if a tire sits around for too many years they start to degrade and stuff like this happens. I will try to find more info on this and post back shortly. (within the next day or 2)

UPDATE found some info quite quickly
