    All I did was turn a little too sharp leaving a church driveway so my back tire went off the curb a little bit the tire apparently said nope. So now I've got my summer tires back on and it's supposed to snow up to over 2 feet this weekend. Guess I'm not going anywhere.

    Are these are older tires that spend most of the year in storage?
    Time does eat away at stuff.
    I hate low profile tires. They go flat if you look at them wrong.
    They might look cool and all, but a pothole will eat them for lunch.

    ^^^ wow.


    Meanwhile, in northern New England -- Mud Season 2021 has arrived in style.
    We had a neighbor get stuck on the hill last night -- her VW Jetta wagon Sportwagen was frame deep in the mud and had to be winched out. The worst of the ruts are 8 to 12 inches deep; worst I've seen here since we got here (2014, in terms of mud season).

    ...

    Granite curbing?

    It's nearly ubiquitous in New England (concrete doesn't hold up well here, and asphalt lasts until the first plowing of the winter) Granite curbs are notorious here for eating tires, all year 'round.

    It's also pretty adept at eating alloy wheels (and not too friendly for steelies, either).

    Thanks! I should have known that, oldtimer's disease. I had a good friend many years ago, now passed, who lived in Enumclaw. Gorgeous country.

    Another enemy of low-profile tires and alloy wheels are the metal plates that are used temporarily to cover pot hole and minor road repairs here in New England, and perhaps elsewhere.

    If their edges are not "beveled" with hot-top, a low-profile tire that is under-inflated a bit can compress enough to cut the side wall and warp the wheel. I know whereof I speak because it happened to me with a brand new Lexus LS430 on the Leverett connector in January 2003. And, I was not the only victim that evening: There was a line of at least six or seven vehicles that had driven over the same metal plate who were lined up along side the road waiting for AAA to show up.

    Not fun.
