You know, it is really hard to drive on any road when one side of your tire is flat.
I called around a few places and could not find a 14′ tire , unless I wanted a new one at a price that we cannot afford. I found myself screaming at the sky over that one. Is it not a pain in the tucus.
I finally found a tire. First, however, I checked the van to see what size was needed to be replaced. This is what I found.
Right front tire – 185/60/14
Left front – 195/70/14
Right rear – 185/70/14
Left rear – 185/65/14
Spare tire – 205/70/14 It also had a hole in the sidewall, useful – NOT
If you read the list carefully, there are 5 different sizes connected to our van. ARGThat is one way to go nuts quickly. We were blessed. There is a place nearby that sells car parts. You pull the part off the junker with your own tools. At least the tires were already on a rack and didn’t need to be removed from the rims. After we got the flat tire inflated, went to the bank, drove to the parts yard, got the tire, went to the repair shop and they installed the tire for us. Our back tires now match. Will wonders never cease.( HAH insert sarcasm here.)
Oh well, we got a tire and we are on the road again. The spare, well……The rear tires are both now 185/70/14′s. Yes we can roll on down the road. For now.
