Home > Hubcaps!


June 8th, 2009 at 05:56 pm

I took my car to the mechanic today and the reason for the flat tires was discovered: hubcaps!

Apparently the previous owner put hubcaps on the wheels that did not fit and it was cutting off the valve. Somebody must have kicked my hubcaps and that made it deflate more quickly.

I joked to the mechanic: I never thought I would have to check the hubcaps on a used car! Seriously, who would have thought to check that?

I picked up my paycheck today. It was for $367.37 and went right into checking. I had to take about $50 out of savings to cover the smog/car registration and parking permit. I will get my car registered tomorrow and send off the payment for the permit too. So I wasn't able to save anything but I also didn't take anything out for spending money.

This weekend will be very very busy. I work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. So my next paycheck should be larger than it has been recently.

    I'm glad it was a simple fix but that sucks it caused so much drama over little tiny pieces of rubber.

    Me too. It didn't take very long to fix (maybe half an hour- most of that was cleaning out the tire with the fix-a-flat) which was nice. But I did find it amusing that the hubcap caused the problem.

    They charged me a little for the labor to get the fix-a-flat foam out but that was it.
