Her work parking lot is akin to a war zone (I am extra cautious with the Paseo), but she hit a high spot and bent the crap out of her hubcap. No big deal, I popped it out. But beneath the warped hubcap hid a nice bubble in the sidewall. So now Iโ€™m sitting for some untold hours as the Discount Bois, waiting for a new tire.

She showed me the spot she hit, thereโ€™s like a pothole on one side and a mound of improperly shoveled asphault on the other. Itโ€™s all black with no definition. Seems an honest mistake, just not the best time for an unexpected expense, which is what my 2019 has been: a series of nickel-and-diming.

Huge relief that the suspension is fine and the car drives straight and true. No clunks or pulls. So it could be worse. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
