...'cause you never know when your front tire might burst on the way to work on a bright, sunny 7-degree day. Oh well, at least I have new front tires to greet the next snow storm. I needed an alignment thanks to the ongoing construction on every road I drive on, and an oil change, and windshield wipers, and a new inspection sticker anyway. So the day was not a total waste. What the heck. I even got some exercise walking to and from the tire store. (Brrrrrr!)
These stupid tires that came with the car didn't even last 25K miles. And yes, I rotated, but evidently, not often enough. :-(
No emergencies allowed for the rest of January!
