Back In Balance

Well, I took the car to a mechanic. The mechanic told me the first thing I should do is to take it to the tire guys and have the relevant tires balanced. This I have done, and now the vibration is almost entirely gone. (Heck, I think it's better than it was before I hit the stupid curb.) Total cost: $14.98. I love it when car problems turn out to be simple and cheap!

Unfortunately, they did also point out to me that I badly need new tires. I would like to disbelieve them on this point, but, alas, the evidence is on their side. Well, one thing at a time...


  1. Alas, new tires won't be as cheap, but what really is the price of safety?

  2. In this case, I think the price of safety is a few hundred dollars. :)
