Adventures in Changing Tires

So, thanks to my living in a construction zone at least for a little while longer while they finish the neighborhood, I got a nail in my tire. Then I got a nail out of my tire (dumb move, I know). Then I got a flat tire.

Rather than sit around waiting for AAA road-side assist, I decided it was time for another adventure in automotive repair (following up on three previous efforts). I changed my own tire. It’s a miracle.

The tire is only a few months old and had Goodyear’s road hazard insurance, so the good folks at Hogan & Sons Goodyear were kind enough to have everything fixed up good as new within 45 minutes for free. I would have more pictures, but . . . well . . . I was in a hurry to change the tire, and Melissa was holding the manual ;-).
