Just curious if im the only one. When i bought the car in july last year it had new tires all around. One month afterwards I was on my way to see Big & Rich about 50 miles away at about halfway i started smelling a bad rubber burning smell. you know the one. :eek: As a came across a bridge doing 75 (talking on the phone, of course) and i see a big cloud of rubber and look back to see what was left of my tire. Anyways i tried to put the spare on and whoever had it before must have used it in the rain and my jack is now a piece of rust permately attached to the car. Went to the concert finally after a lil help from my buddy who was following. On the way back i smelled the same smell and drove to the closes lit parking lot which happend to be Wal Mart. I felt the back side of the tires and they were paper thin! All of em! Turns out their was earth clay stuck on the struts that got hard and just ate em. (The city was paving our street at the time and nobody had a choice but to drive through it all) Well anyways $375 and a day later i was back on the road. 8K miles later my front tires are ate up from the aligment being soo off. 2 new tires for the front, some inner and outer tierod bushings ($600) and im good to go again. Until tonight. I was delivering pizza. (my night job) In a hurry of course and i cut the corner a lil bit and hear a metal on metal sound (storm drain):doh: Stopped and took a quick look and didnt see anything unusaul so i carry on. Get back to the store and Im coming out with the next 2 and see my back pass side tire flat. :doh: Now i gotta bent rim and theres also a nail in the tire (who knows how long thats been there).
My first car i put on its top when the tire blew on a gravel road back when i was 16. good times. http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g221/mikeller1986/roldsmobile.jpg

Wow, that's horrible luck. If my 20's did that, I don't know what I'd do?

To the person that was confused by my earlier post in this thread (BTW, thanks for the positive rep), I posted that pic cause I noticed that the author of the thread is from Osceola, IA which is where I had stopped two weekends ago to take that picture of the new Casino sign that you can see from miles away on I35.
