Another Day, Another Tire

My gosh, what is with me and tire problems? Just 3 1/2 months ago, I hopped into the car and sped off to shul. I made it about 100 yards before I realized my tire was flat.

Well, the same thing happened today, only this time I made it all the way to shul before I realized something was very, very wrong.

I think the big guy upstairs is just toying with me at this point.

Luckily, all it took was a phone call to Acura Care to send out the reinforcements. While I was inside praying, my tire got changed. And while the incident will trigger yet another trip to the tire store, it was actually quite painless.

Pretty soon, Acura Care will have me on caller ID, and I'll call up to hear: "Oh, hi Mr. Simon, the tire changing crew is on the way."

OK - here's the big test. If it's the same tire that the tire center put on last time, they'll replace it for free. What are the odds that this is the case? Yeah, pretty much zero.

  1. Flat tires seem to come in pairs. I got two within a few days of each other several months ago. Not cheap.
