We need to get two new tires on the car. It's not urgent, but we do need them before we go on vacation end of July. We had planned on getting them end of June.
On Thursday, driving home from the city after my Doctors appointment, I stopped at McDonalds to bring home dinner. Turning into the parking lot, I shut the radio off, and as the car slowed down I heard this nasty groaning-grinding noise.
It was coming from the back passenger side tire.
By Saturday, the noise was horrible. It was almost constant. Slowing down, turning, driving fast, we heard it. Now we didn't have to turn off the radio to hear the tire grinding. Now it was a bit more urgent we get the tires.
We decided that we would have to get the tire replaced immediately, and when the tire was off, the guys at the garage would be able to figure out the noise.
It was a beautiful afternoon here, and I gave Stuperman a frog shaped shower poof, a cup of liquid hand soap and a big bucket of water. I sent him outside to make bubbles.
He decided to wash the car instead.
When he was done I took the garden hose to the car to get the soap off. Black, oily dirt started to pour from the back passenger tire when I sprayed it so I called The husband out. He took off the hubcap for me so I could clean the tire better.
He also took out all the rocks Stuperman had shoved into it.
Sigh. Kids. . .
