Sorry to hear that Santa. I haven't driven my car in rain for the past month or so because my tires were very close to being completely bald. I just purchased new tires and they will get installed today. Again, sorry to hear that... and good to hear that you're not hurt.
I remember cruisin in my friends car in high school (I believe it was a 4 door Caprice Classic) and we did a 180 in the middle of a busy intersection due to bald tires and rain. Later on the day we slid sideways while taking a left. Long story short, I never rode in that car again.
ahhh so that was the plan, total the charger to get a challenger, thats fraud my friend!!! Honestly though glad your ok, orry about the car, maybe they can take care of the back bumper for you while their at it!!!, If you need any help buddy give a shout
but glad to hear you are ok!!!!!!! I had bald tires last summer and I was warned not to take 1fine out on the rainy days because of hydroplaining....needless to say these type of days 1fine stayed home until I did get tires this year.....
Like one of the posts mentioned, cars can be repaired/replaced-people cannot. Glad you are ok.
First, like all the others, I am relieved that no one was hurt, but sad that your car is wrecked.
And now for the SCOLDING --- many have posted that they are running on bald, or near bald tires!! I can't beleive this! That's really silly. Think about a selfish reason: You invested between $30,000 - $40,000 on your car, and you don't spend $500 to get a new set of tires every so often? That's not money well spent. If that's not reason enough, then think about a saftey reason --- you are imperiling others on that you share the road with! You can seriously hurt someone in a car wreck.
I've logged more than 105,000 miles on my car, and have been through a few sets of tires. For my Summer tires, I've found the TOYO PROXES S/T (there is also a S/T-II -- same tiure, different look) to be a great tire, and can be found for a good price:
255-50/18 (These are almost identtcal size to OEM by profile....a great fit!)
Cost: $130.00 @
