Sears, Can You Fix This?
I decided to go to an auction in Pennsylvania today and ran into a little problem. It seems that bolts and tires don't mix together very well. As I was driving along I80 a slight clicking sound was emanating from my truck. I suspected that one of the tires on my trailer was making the noise, wrongo, it was my rear truck tire, a rear truck tire with a 3" bolt stuck in it.
Fortunately, I'm cheap. So cheap that I am the guy that everyone bitches about on the highways. I've found out that my gas mileage is 20% higher when I drive 55, so I do. In this case it was a double blessing, I got the gas mileage and when the tire blew I didn't end upside down in the median.
Well, I missed the auction. Thank you AAA for your prompt service.
