I'm a little frustrated at the moment with the users of Craigslist, and by that I mean the entire population of this country. Its bad enough that when placing an ad we all have to worry about the flood of spam we know is going to come, and don't want to list our phone number lest we get robocalls. Then when the shoes on the other foot we have to call and call or email again and again and get no response. So I figured I'd set out a few guidelines, and also vent my frustrations.
Last week I talked about tire sizing and helped you figure just what all the numbers mean when shopping for tires. Today I'm digging deeper into the alpha-numerical alphabet soup on marked on the wall of the tires.
Tires being one of the largest contributors to the safety of a vehicle, and the only thing that touches the ground, there are a bunch of rules and regulations that manufacturers need to meet in order to sell them in this country.
My daily-driven truck needs tires. Also the race car I've been shoveling time and money into needs a set of tires as well, because the factory specified tires for a 1979 Ford Futura are not the tires you want for hours of fast driving on a road course.
So, since I've been looking a a lot of tires online, I figured I would share some tire basics with you folks.
Then when the time comes to replace your car tires you'll have a better idea of what you are getting into. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say.
More and more people today are looking for ways to save money, and buying things at a garage sale is one way to help your finances. There are some things, however, you just do not want to buy at a garage sale. These items could eventually cause you health issues or put your health in jeopardy.
This could potentially be a long story. I typically talk with my hands, so be glad that this is not a video or you would be cracking up at me.
My husband and I have never been rolling in the dough. We have struggled with finances since we got married 11 years ago. We have had our ups and downs financially, especially with 3 kids in the house. This last year we have really been working even harder to pull ourselves out of that hole.
I don't know much about fixing cars. For this reason, I always take my vehicles to the dealer for service. Many people don't believe in this, but for the most part, things have always worked out for me.
Unfortunately, I had a bad experience last week which changed the way I feel about car maintenance from the dealership.
