You need to make sure she is SAFE! Remember to "do as I say, and not as I did", because I didn't know any better at the time.
I grabbed my son's car and drove 100 mi. to pick her up, looked at her for about 10 minutes, paid the man, hooked her up and made a b-line home because I had to make a flight. Drove WAAAY to FAST on tires that as my son said "Mom, I've never seen tires so bad!"
All I can say, is it was MEANT to BE!!!
So off to find three new tires, and then a lesson in re-packing wheel bearings, so that she will now roll merrily along safely!
