Here's how my day went

I woke up at 6:30 am and we leave the house at 7:00 am. We drop off my sister at 8:00 in Riverside for a test she has to take. We leave at 8:30 and get to Newegg at 9:30. The event doesn't start until 10:00 but we go in anyway. We chat until like 11:00 and then the event started. We watch the Newegg people build an X99 system until about 1:45 when I went and got some In n Out because I hadn't eaten anything yet. My dad leaves to pick up my sister at around 2:00 . At around 2:30 I won a Thermaltake Core V71 Full Tower case. This event was sponsored by Thermaltake so that explains the case. About 10 minutes ago as of time of writing (3:20) I win a mouse pad and a power bank. I am really grateful to Newegg and Thermaltake for having this event. Thank you guys.

Well here it is - Woke up tired af even though I went to sleep at like 8 PM - went to a place for breakfast, usually go there while in NY - Went to a strawberry festival, made more friends there in one hour than over a whole school year in FL :( - walked around downtown, saw an awesome boat with orange red and grey chrome, got ice cream - Went to J&Rs for dinner, got a baked potato and French onion soup since I fill up on the macaroni they serve, played QuickDraw. Won $2 :D spent $20 on it D: - Got home, staying at my grandpa's house, helped him with errors on his PC, suggested that he should get a new SSD (A-data 120GB, he only has 60GB used with malware and OS included), and my dads IT guy could switch the OS over leaving the 13GB of malware behind. I suggested this since it was obvious the HDD was corrupted since if you clicked certain programs (of course the only ones he used including day trade and stock investments) Yes he still makes $20,000 a year from that, he's very sharp in the mind still at 79 years old. Anyways, he said he knew a PC store that's owned by a friend of his so his friend can replace it.

I talk too much :I - finally I'm here on my temporary bed watching Pyrocynical

Don't let a shop replace the wheel. They will charge you like a thousand bucks. Buy a used one off the internet. Also what kind of tire was that? Looks like a firestone? If so not surprising it failed.

Whatever you do make sure to replace BOTH front tires. Never ever replace just one. That's stupidly dangerous.

Really? How so?

  • 39 months ago

Or simply flip the front and back ones :P

Did you not have a spare tire?

  • 39 months ago

Different levels of grip make wet weather very dangerous. Even in the dry they can be dangerous and will wear out components. A new tire and a worn tire on the same end of the car will cause suspension damage and steering component damage due to one tire being slightly bigger than the other. On awd vehicles this is horrible. If you run a different tire on a subaru you will total the car in 5k miles or so. I have seen it happen tons of times.
