A couple of months ago I noticed my car had caught a small nail in the front left tyre. I didn’t do anything about it, as the tyre kept it’s pressure fine… That is until a week ago when the car started to shudder a little when going over bumps, a check of the pressure showed that the tyre was slowly losing pressure to a certain point. So today I get it fixed at a certain tyre store, Hour and a Half and $15 later and the tyre is repaired.
I get home fine and the tyre’s working great, until I leave tonight to go play squash and the tyre is now COMPLETELY FLAT! So we take my friends car, and change it over… what a waste of a perfectly good Sunday.
What did I learn from this?
A) If it ain’t broke don’t fix it
B) If it’s a little broke and it’s 50:50 as to whether to repair or replace… always replace
