I fully expect to have a tire catastrophe in the near future.
I accept this fact because for the last couple of weeks, I’ve ignored a tire problem that has cropped up. There’s a slow leak in my front driver’s-side tire that requires a stop at the gas station, four quarters and about 15 pounds of air pressure every couple of days.
There are some who won’t call that a “slow leak,” but instead give it the full-blown label of “leak,” or even “flat tire.”
There are two possibilities with this leak. Either it’s an easy fix that a quick stop at a tire store can fix, or it’s a sign that I’ll soon have a $600 credit-card charge for four new tires.
I foresee the latter, which explains my lack of action to resolve the problem.
If only there was a way to eliminate the need for air in tires…
