The Diary of the Phantom Tire Buyer #85

A Web Log from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity

Is it me, dear reader, or are you also beginning to notice a few more cars on the road?  Certainly not a dramatic difference, but 5 weeks ago, 134 cars passed by my secret lair on Monday, between 2pm and 4pm.  Yesterday, during the same period of time, I counted 173.  Yes, sometimes I count cars as they pass by.  It’s quite relaxing, actually.

So, if my calculations are correct then more and more people are getting back on the road.  BUT!  Did you know that a car that hasn’t been used – that’s just been sitting in the driveway or on the street – can develop problems?  Flat spots on tires, or a weakened battery are common issues.  That’s why I urge all my neighbors, like Mrs. Riley, who hasn’t left the house in months, to make their first trip a trip to the nearest Tire Discounters! 

Full disclosure:  I may have mentioned it here before, but Chip Wood, the founder and Chairman of Tire Discounters is my close personal friend.  But, that doesn’t affect my recommendation even a bit – for as a Phantom Tire Buyer with a secret identity, my sole purpose in life is to give people the information they need to ensure their vehicles’ safety!

Tire Discounters can check your tires and your battery and will do so for no cost.  Please, I implore you, if your car has been sitting for an extended period of time, get it checked.  Let’s all be safe out there!
