Yak Shaving

The passenger side front tire on my car blew out on I-91 yesterday afternoon. I must say that modern suspension systems make this a remarkably uneventful occurrence, even though I had to weave over to the shoulder from the number two lane through Memorial Day traffic moving at full speed. (I left a visible trail of rubber.)

Unfortunately, my donut spare doesn't hold air anymore, as it appears to be leaking from the bead. (The tire is, I believe, as old as the car, which means it's seventeen years old.)

Time to go find another tire or two. So I can replace it, and have four tires on the car. So I can take the car in to have the air conditioning fixed. So I can actually drive it in reasonable comfort this summer...
