Tires and a little more

September 4th, 2016 at 09:29 am

Yesterday, we spend a lot of money but mostly due to having to replace four tires on hubby's truck. He searched and search for used but in good condition but he was never able to find them. We ended up at Firestone after wheeling and dealing (hubby has the gift of gab), we spent $480 for tires and mounting. They later called hubby to tell him that he needed brakes and wheel alignment, but little do they know that my husband is mechanically inclined and can do the brakes himself,which he was aware of the need. As for the wheel alignment my husband said that the truck needs no alignment. I guess it's a tactic the company used to have people spend more. We spent $55 at Aldi but DS#2 had given me $50 for food and hubby made $30 mowing a small lawn, so that expense was pretty much a wash.

Well, that's it for today. I hope you all have a great Labor Day.

    How fortunate your hubby is mechanically inclined and knows what needs to be done and what doesn't. Although the tires seem pricey, I'm sure they were worth it and your safety is important.

    Happy Labor Day to you as well.

    rob62521, I wish we'd found them cheaper but we could not wait anymore. My husband was pretty satisfied with the price and now the truck is ready for the winter.
