Last week my son was doing the brakes on my little Hyundai and he said the tires were badly worn in places and that I really needed new tires, ASAP. So, Friday, I stopped by Discount Tires to get some. Ross had looked up tires on line before I went so I already knew what I wanted, thankfully. There were the basic cheap tires at $40 each. Then there was a sale on Pirelli for $46 each with a $40 rebate. These tires were 85,000 tires as opposed to the 50,000 basic. Hello! which would you buy? So when I went to the shop, he told me he didn't have any tires my size but I could go to a larger basic tire for $54. I asked about the Pirellis. He said, "Oh yeah, those. We don't have any right now. They are a great deal though, aren't they? We can order them for you." I said okay. I mean, did I really have a choice?? ;) I had to pay at least half right away so I paid all $296 right away and he said the tires should be in on Tuesday since this weekend was a long one. Oh well, no driving my little car for a while. Then, later he called and said, "no, the tires wouldn't be in until around Thursday or Friday." Drag!
So, I already knew my Infiniti needed rotors. It's been wobbling a lot when I brake. Because I was driving it full time I decided to check that out. Over $400 dollars later, Midas got me and my Infiniti all fixed up with rotors all around and brake pads in the back.
Wow! I'm looking for a money tree. Anybody seen one?
