When it rains it pours.

Postby KaceyDucks » Mon Oct 14, 2013 9:22 am

Last night I was flat towing my jeep from Georgetown, TX to a shop near killeen and hit road debris. Three flat tires. Sat on side of I 35 for four and a half hours waiting for my buddy to come through with a tow dolly. Phone charger broke during all of this. Got home to Dallas, TX at 0530 at work at 0900. Man I hope this counts for all three bad things in the rule of threes.

Cheers to Monday being here I guess.

Man that blows. Any chance of repairing the tires?

Pallet fell off of a flatbed straight truck. I am putting new procomp 31s on the Jeep. Truck tire is repairable. But just really sucks. Bright side is I got it to the shop that should TBI problems...and they sell Pro Comps Merry early christmas to me. :thumbsup:

I've had a blowout and 2 flats within the last year, but only one at a time lol. Horrible luck with tires.

WW, I knew you lived in the Temple area. I really wish that I just had a car hauler and a winch and I wouldn't have to mess with such things.

I guess I have had pretty good luck with tires for the last few years so I got it all at once.

I got a flat on Sunday, was on the 3rd lug nut and my lug key broke off. Long story short, the only place to find a new lug key was at the dealership, they weren't open due to it being Sunday, then again yesterday becuase of the holiday. So I go up there today and the only one they have is missing so I had to have it towed there and they are ordering a new part to come in tomorrow.
Going on 3 days just because of a flat tire. Terrible...on a good note I shot 4 ducks yesterday.
Don't tread on me.

Man season isn't even open yet for us down here in Texas. I am really jealous. I was at least fortunate enough to figure out my problems on the side of the road.

I have however bought two new sets of tires because of this...there goes $1800
