It could be that my purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others. Or, it could be, that I have bad luck with tires. The tire fairy has again visited me and this time shredded the ever living crap out of my front tire. I knew the tires were getting towards the end of their life, but I didn’t think that the entire tire would explode on the highway. I only have 30,000 miles on those tires, they should have been good for quite a while more. Nope, I guess not. This morning on my way to work I heard a nasty thump, pulled off, and found bits and pieces of my tire as a trail behind me. Better than describing it to you, I can just show you…
I’ve found a set of replacements, I’m done with these, this is the 2nd tire that this has happened to. I thought the first was a fluke. Guess not. I’ve got an appointment to get 4 new tires put on tonight. I hate unexpected expenses like this. Arrg!
I guess I should be lucky, looking at the damage, that I didn’t lose control of the car. Here’s to small miracles.
PS: The grass IN the tire, is from the side of the road I pulled off onto, dunno how it got sucked in there, go figure.
wow! looks nasty!
glad you’re ok, amigo…
did you ever find the hiptones application for your sidekick? im in desperate need of it and i cant find it anywhere. if you have it or know where I can get it, please please please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m afraid not. I couldn’t find it anywhere. There’s word that the Sidekick 3 has mp3 support, but no one really knows. There is a site that’s kinda of a backway to get some tunes on your sidekick though,
You can’t use them as ringtones, but you basically email yourself really compressed music files to play as you want. I’ve found I can store about 15-20 in my email inbox.
