Default im a bad husband

i noticed last night while standing against the 97 with my two brothers that the front tires on the 94 HAD WIRES SHOWING AND WERE BALD!!!!.So i asked my wife why cause she'd said that she got new tires on it in April.well i haven't been under the car much so i guess i never noticed.and when i asked where she got the tire how much they cost and if they were new she said no.therefore this morning i went to Boland tire(the local firestone tire shop) and got 4 brand new goodyear assurance comfortreads on it for her.107 bucks a peice 30 bucks to balance them and 4 bucks each for stems and install.....Grand total.....474 bucks even.But she told me that she bought used tires for ten bucks thats why they were shot already so i feel better now knowing my wife has some nice brand new tires to roll on and now i am going outside to wash it wax it buff it clean the rims and detail the interior probably steam clean also

I've never bought used tires. I usually just buy the cheapest new ones I can get! LOL

I've started picking up used when things are right. Cars get totalled with new tires.

ur not a bad husband.. ur just a typical male. LOL. But there is nothing like the piece of mind of having new tires on a vehicle that ur soulmate is driving. Just a few hours ago Me and my girlfriend picked up my mom and two sisters and headed to the closest big city to visit a collage and it was POURING rain. we could bearily see. There was 6inches of standing water on certain parts of the 4 lane expressway. we were traveling at about 45-50 mph and hitting these spots of water and the brand new tires would cut right threw the water, provide ample traction and we all felt safe.

you know thats kind of ironic cause i got woke up by that same storm system and as soon as i woke up i headed for firestone like seriously ive never hydroplaned so bad in my life on the way there couldnt see but maybe20-30 feet ahead of me and on the way back theose new assurance'* did what theyre named they assured me i was safe and that my wife will be to i take her saftey very seriously its also funny cause the car shook at certain speeds and i asked her if they balanced her 10 dollar tires she said yes well they didnt do a very good job cause now that they are properly balanced the shaking is gone whooo hooo

Well, I just never thought of buying used tires, so I didn't know.
