New Tires!

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

When you get new tires on your car, truck, suv, or limo, don’t you feel like you’re driving a completely new car? That’s the way I feel. The Escape just got some new tires (I like to call ’em New Shoes), and it feels just like I’m driving on pillows. Before yesterday when I got the new ones on, I would be going 75 on the highway, and it felt like I was driving about 90. Now when I’m going 75 on the highway, I bet it’s gonna feel like I’m going about 55!

I love the new look of some new tires. Well, the new look of anything suits me just fine. I just got my roof redone, and it looks legit as well. I found a roofing company on Google, and hit them up two weeks ago so they could get the job done. It was done right and in only a couple days, so just another new thing in my life, which is pretty awesome.

Back to the tires. I bought Firestone¬†Destination tires, because the guy at Firestone said they are a great all season tire, and they have a 60,000 lifetime tread warranty. That will take me to about 160,000 miles on the odometer of the good ole Escape, which will probably be the end of that SUV, simply because it’s a Ford. I take very good care of it, changing the oil every 3 thousand miles, even though I put full synthetic oil into it, with which I could change it every 5000 miles. I’ve had too much bad luck with cars to mess around with them. I perform the service as soon as I possibly can without overspending on anything, just so I feel good about the longevity that I’m going to get out of the vehicle.

The tires that I bought are all season tires, but they will be good in the snow as well. I don’t spend a lot of money on cars. To me, they’re just a¬†point A to point B mode of transportation, and I don’t need something fancy. I’d rather spend my dough on experiences, and not looking good in a car. Don’t really need that, and I don’t think I ever will. I care enough about paying the bills on time, having enough dough to go out and eat, and enough to go see a ballgame every now and then.

Here are the tires. Let me know what you think!
