Tiring stuff!

You may recall that in early March when we were passing through Ozona, TX we suffered a flat tire and had to call on Good Sam Roadside Assistance to swap it with our spare.  Well, we found out yesterday that even though the spare looked in excellent shape it was actually faulty.  It completely lost its tread in one section of the tire causing much vibration.  Thank goodness it didn't completely disintegrate!

We had the spare (the one that had gone flat in Ozona) temporarily reinstalled, and hauled ourselves off to Discount Tire who supplied us with a full set of seven Yokohama YK-HTX all season tires.


  1. Yikes! That is scary! Those new tires look like just the ticket. Question; are the fronts different from the back?

    1. All 7 are the same. They will be rotated every 5,000 miles - free of charge at any Discount Tires location nationwide.

  2. Oh, so double the tires on the rear then. Nice that you have a deal with Discount Tire!
