    Good grief, more car issues

    Had a flat on the way home yesterday evening. Go to the range this morning, had a great 4 hours, and then head to NTB. Turns out I have a ripped side wall! Tires bought 9/15/18!!!

    New tire $130. Why didn’t I buy the warranty!!

    Manager gets my tire, install and warranty on all four for $89 out the door. Turned out all right.

    Seems like you've had a few tire issues recently. Now that I've said that, I'm next.

    I had to replace my alternator and water pump on my truck last week. That was 300 bucks I was putting back for a 627 Tracker! Darnit.

    I would usually have rotating years when we owned the farm/ranch. One year would be tires. Having tires on a tractor repaired runs into some big bucks quick if you require a service call.

    The next year it would be batteries with 2 per tractor at a time. Still own 4 tractors which all likely need batteries and tire service....LOL

    Dad blew out a tire on a tractor out at Sandlake and that “remote” service call was big $.

    I have never bought the tire warranties (he said at the risk of jinxing himself)...Changed them out a couple of months ago to the tune of 750.00. Good that the dealer took care of you.

    I have an issue with my AC currently...55k on a 2015 Durango. Have yet to do some investigation on probable cause.

    At $10 per tire always buy the warranty, I've had it pay for itself a couple of times one tire is all it takes.

    I have the highest respect for tire guys, especially when it comes to the big stuff. Whatever they charge, they're worth every penny if you've ever done it yourself.

    Good grief Charlie Brown can't you ever get one year without vehicle problems, I say in my nastiest Nancy voice. When I started paying more than $100 a tire, I buy warranties. Out here in the country we have some nasty rock/dirt roads. Wifes high end Michelin off road tires-had two flat out, both had nasty damage. Walmart warranty covered both(they pushed back a bit-I stood my ground) at $235 a tire they had a bad day. MIL's has had one go flat and Walmart had to eat that one too. The extended warranty pays for itself out here. Then with the no deductible comprehensive car insurance plan we have, I can get them out to put the spare on no charge, wherever I am. Or free tow, whichever is needed. So we pay more up front, but it is paying for itself.

    But it's almost worth the price just to watch the tire jockey mount a large rear tractor tire using spray ether, a match, and a prayer.
