At last new tires
Today was the day to get the new tires put on the van. I drove down town to Kar Kare Auto Repairs where Steve works who I’m staying with.
I mostly watched and did little stuff like clean the dirt off the rims and Steve did most of the work.
We got the fronts on and then did the rear tires. Steve said he found a three inch slit in one of the rear tires on the inside so I guess I needed new tires.
Need new brake shoes too
We then did the rears and I’m good to go. Steve removed the rear brake drums to check the brake shoes and they were getting close to hitting the rivets so I’ll have to get new shoes for the rears when I get home.
We spent the rest of the day puttering around Steve’s garden and that was pretty much it for the day.
Nice to have good tires on the van.
Nice that you are travelling safely now, Bob. I can stop worrying. :D
