Unhappy Well.....crap!

Well, there just went my budget for that Eclipse 10mm I was thinking about! Took the truck in due to a slow leak in one tire and found it was a major hole that couldn't be repaired. By the time all was said and done, I ended up replacing all four tires for the price of an Eclipse. Unfortunately, my other truck could use new tires as well. Maybe I don't need to add another caliber any time soon after all........

I understand, life gets in the way sometimes. I've saved up a dozen times for a lift kit and tires for my jeep....

I raced Cat III both road and track back in the early Nineties. I remember Continentals and/or Vittorias set me back a pretty penny, especially sew-ups!

I faced a similar decision in 2015, my truck needed new tires so I bought a new truck.
