What a difference new tires can make! Finally got my new Michelins (LTX
M/S) installed today, and it's like driving a new truck - smoother ride,
that annoying little braking shudder is gone, handles much better,
especially on the turns. The new tires aren't particularly noisy either.
Woohoo! Here's hoping it actually *snows* this winter here in England!

::sigh:: oh, just go away. If you'd been paying attention, you'd know
it was not. I've been here for a while, asked advice about which tires
to buy, and bought them based on the recommendations here (and bought
them from a vendor similarly recommended). I included the full name of
the tire for the benefit of those who hadn't read my earlier posts.
In the end, I don't really care if you think this is an ad; I don't
think the regulars really do either.
I don't really care if it was an ad or not, just expressing my thoughts for a
"The regulars" ...oh does that make you better and more experienced? Is that
anything like a golf or bowling team?
well, excuuseee me, while I just pardon myself right out of this post, your
wasting my time.

My sarcasm detector just lit like a Christmas tree :)
May not seem a big deal to you, but I'm an American posted overseas
where the exchange rate is *not* favorable to the US Dollar. I'd have
paid at least twice as much for 'em. Finding an online vendor who'll
ship to APO can be a challenge too.
Since people come here for advice (such as what tires to buy) I thought
that it might be useful to let people know that so far I like this
(oh, and apologies if you were serious, and remember me posting a couple
of times about tires. Had a bad day yesterday, so I'm a bit thinner
skinned than usual.)

No worries. I usually don't, but 3 weeks of bronchitis followed by
idiots at work that micromanage when they're not even my manager have me
a bit more annoyed in general just now. I usually just ignore. I
learned how to do that from my cat :)

It's the thought that counts... I'd take either at the moment; a hug's
I was just remembering hearing somewhere that a person needed x number
of hugs a day for mental health. Don't remember what x equals though...
