Yes it does. Probably election time buy ups.

Not if the other guy hits you . Last wreck it was either the guy that pulled out in front of me or hit the other waiting to turn and let him get off scott free so I nailed his ass , we hit in a v shape his LF to my RF then we commenced to side swipe the piss out of each other , he just hit his brakes harder than I did
I could have avoided it but the damage to my car and the others would have been on me but if he knocked me into them then its on him , I had to keep the wheel turned into him just to keep from going over into oncoming traffic , I dont like head ons

Same goes for deers , I refuse to hit a ditch or oak tree to miss a deer , I will hit the deer everytime . Insurance will go up for hitting ditch or tree but if you hit the deer first then its considered act of God and rates wont rise .

Come on. Buy her new tires, for chrissake. She's driving your children around in that car. And trash you're own car. Maybe she likes her car.

They are new , they just dont match . We have a little bit of older inventory that are just one of this one of that , one BFG and one Nitto or something , I ride the kids around more than she does .

Would you not take new mis-matched tires if they were free or 1/4 of the price?

What about mis-matched ammo ?

We use to be able to buy blemished tires from the factory like maybe they misspelled Michelin or it had a hard spot in it and they sold like crazy b/c they were so cheap but around the time of the Firestone recall they stopped that mess . BTW it was not really a firestone issue more of a ford explorer issue .

If you go to buy new tires check the date on them , most of the time it is the last 2 digits of the DOT code IE '' aw2b12 '' would have been made in 2012 . If they are more than 3 or so years old dont buy them or make them discount them . We have seen many many '' NEW '' tires blow out soon after install .
Also never patch a tire , always plug it . A patch will let water inbetween the tread and the belts therefor rusting the steel belt causing it to either break , bubble , come along with a multitude of other dangerous issues .
Dont plug sidewalls
YOU CAN DRIVE ON A FLAT TIRE ! I have driven over 75 miles with 3 tires before at 55mph , on the shoulder though .
Aluminum rims will hold up much better driving on the rim than a steel wheel will , all in all aluminum wheels are in many ways stronger than steel but they can crack unlike most steel wheels will .
Always , no matter if its front wheel drive , rear wheel drive or all wheel drive , the tires with the most tread goes on the back .
Dont waste your money on the whole NITROGEN filled tires gimmick , its no better than summer air or winter air .
If you are concerned about ride quality and the shop offers Road Force balancing then opt for it , it matches the bad spot of the rims to the bad spot on the tires to get the best possible ride out it but if your driving a escort then dont bother , basically if your car was designed for comfort then its worth doing

That concludes Mobile Marines daily lesson on tire safety , thank you letting me force unwanted information into your brain

Why cant I come up with something simple and practical and make millions off of it ?
They have a quick engine block drain kit that is nothing more than 5 little ball valves , 5 sections of hose and simple barb fittings for the block and they sell them for 300.00 .
