10 ft, and one additional tiedown for every 10 ft of length, or fraction thereof, beyond the first 10 ft.
Example of § 110(b)(3)

Generally, basic rules do not apply to a vehicle transporting one or more articles of cargo such as, but not limited to, machinery or fabricated structural items (e.g., steel or concrete beams, crane booms, girders, and trusses, etc.) which, because of their design, size, shape, or weight, must be fastened by special methods.
Tire pressure is very important year round—but the heat from the road in the summer months is far worse than any other season - so proper inflation is critical!
