For those who drive things with tires….

I stopped into my local Discount Tire Company today for help with a stripped lugnut. I can change my own tires, but whoever changed my back tire last time stripped the nut. So I went in and asked if they could just take the nut off and put my spare on. The guy not only said he'd look at the lugnut, but also took a look at my other tires. Good thing. I had a nail in one back tire, a screw in the other, and a spare tire that was the wrong size for my truck. They took my truck in and returned it to me in 40 minutes. They patched both the rear tires, and checked the pressure and added air to my front tires. ALL FOR FREE. Seriously. Technically I came out ahead because I had one of their complimentary bottled waters :) This is apparently company policy, but it was a nice frugal/free surprise and a good solution to what could have been a very bad tire situation.
