I look in the mirror and wonder WTF is wrong with me that I want it to snow, just so I can put on snow tires that make me feel like I am driving on dry pavement. Enjoy the sun, I think that this could be a wet winter.

Bought snow tires for the SUV, but being cheap and I didn't buy a different wheel. Now I get to worry about when to go to the tire shop to get it done.

I think Ill visit the tire shop to install the winter tires on the "not a minivan" vehicle this weekend or Monday. Seems like next week we will finally get fall temperatures. Opinions?

I'm not sure, but it's worth the 5 minute phone call to see if they'll price match.

Threw some Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3's on yesterday. Supposedly they'll do great in the slush. I'm eager to find out

Car looks so much better than the pictures that were posted in the for sale ad when you bought it.

Yeah, that guy basically did nothing to the car, including cleaning it. I still want to get it detailed but I might need to find a shop now that it's cold. The mobile detail guys aren't going to be thrilled with the weather now

but I thought u were gonna have a patient of yours do it? Hahah hit me up if u need help.
