Get Hazard Insurance!

October 12th, 2006 at 08:58 pm

Let me tell you about my day. It was a beautiful morning in Georgia. It wasn’t too hot and it wasn’t too cold. There was sunshine gleaming through the trees in my front lawn, and the birds were singing a good tune. It was just perfect. But then…. I was getting ready to go to work and I noticed that my car had a flat tire!

Most people hate having flat tires, but I hate them even more. Want to know why? Well maybe it’s the fact that I have had over 12 flat tires in less than one year and eight months. Or maybe it’s the fact that I have had to get ten patches, and two tire replacement. It might also be the fact that I have had to spend over $400.00 on stupid patches! But luck was on my side. The general manager at Big 10 Tires, Bill, gave me a free patch because I am their best “patch-up” customer.

One of the tires that I replaced was purchased at Big 10. I bought hazard insurance because you know luck will strike again in the future (But then again. My luck shined and decided it wouldn’t be on the tire I have insurance on!). Get hazard insurance on all your tires, because the road is your enemy and it wants to send pieces of sharp metal right into your tire. I wish I could get it on all my tires, but that will have to wait till I get new ones on all my wheels, which according to my calculations should be in three months.

    We are always replacing tires. After Hurricane Rita, the road were especially hazardous with all the metal and roofing nails and such. Road hazard on our tires has saved us a bundle. It's a good idea.

    Why so many flats? That doesn't sound normal at all.

    Replacing tires is just part of the usual vehicle maintenance. I have a crappy car anyway, so I generally get standard 40,000 mile ones, drive it until the treads are worn, and then get them replaced.

    To me, safety is more important than expenses. Bad tires put you at greater risk for vehicle accidents. That and brakes, but pads and shoes aren't expensive either, so long as I stay on top of it.

    Save up the money and get some good tires. Your life and long term health are at risk with tires that just don't cut it. Get the hazard insurance if you feel you need it. Why so many flats though? Good luck with the tires!Smile

    If I only knew... I have $100 tires (not the set, per tire!). Yeah i wonder myself. But it seems like when my car’s wheels start spinning it creates some kind of magnetic field for random debris on the road. Its just I have a new nail or piece of random metal in my tire. My tire also exploded once and almost killed my two friends and myself. I’m telling you bad luck, and the fact that my car is haunted.
