I just spent $500 on tires yesterday.
And somehow, I only bought 2.
My rear tires were bald down to the steel radials (the front ones were better, but not that much better), and dude quoted me something like $150/tire because I have “Performance Tires” or some bullshit. I thought “Eh, thats $300 I dont want to spend…” but then after installation, balancing and the necessary alignment (because how do your tires get ENTIRELY BALD in under 2 years?), the total was like $485.
So yeah. Car insurance? I guess its optional? Dunno. First my clutch and then my tires – Im not a happy camper right now when it comes to car issues. My car is 100% fired.
