Treadless

I apologize for the long time in between posts.  We had a great time at the beach and other than that little choking incident by yours truly it was all fun!  I highly suggest that you make sure that the “Mr.” 25th Hour Gal in your life knows the heimlich maneuver.  Yes, my “Mr. 25thHG” saved my life last week.  I sure am glad he knew what to do!

The weather was great at the beach and it was nice to get away for a short trip and visit with some terrific friends.  Our dream is to retire in the Charleston area.  We just love it up there.

So back to the theme of this post….tread life of your tires.  I had noticed that the tread on my tires seemed very low which was odd since my tires were purchased 18 months ago!  I called around to get quotes for new tires.  My last call was to the original shop that put the last tires on the car.  They looked up my record and my tires came with a 60,000 mile warranty.  I had only driven them 27,000 miles.  The good news was that I got more than 50% of my original purchase price back and applied to the new tires purchased!  This was a huge savings!

My tip today is to always go back to your original mechanic if something fails or wears out sooner than expected.  Your part or service may not always have a warranty but if it does, you may very well be entitled to money back.   The 25th Hour Gal always enjoys getting money back and I bet you do too!
