No offence, but it sounds like a "penny wise, pound foolish" situation to me.

I don't do retreads at all. I bought my first car many years ago, which had retreads on. As i was an inexperienced driver at the time, I did not look for things like that.

I had the car for a week, when the front left tire delaminated in a sharp bend on the freeway, and I almost lost control.

Since then, I've replaced my tires with new ones when needed. I say again, I don't do retreads.


What is the cost/worth of a life? Especially where you guys live with snow and heavy rains......

Anyway, I sincerely hope you can get your tire issues/refunds resolved in a timely matter. Good luck!!

Looks like a clean install. Any wiring upgrades needed?

No special wiring. Just used a piggyback spade connector to run the second set of wires to the other horn.

Unfortunately, I have observed that MOST businesses don't value their key people until they leave.  And then it is too late for both.  This is why the modern "successful" employee is essentially forced to job hop (leaving one employer for another, then another).  And that is a HUGE shame, because it is often the long-term (yet good) employees who are the most valuable to the company.  They know the most, they are the most loyal, they are sometimes the people who get most of the actual work done.  Turnover can sometimes be a good thing, but it is also terribly expensive, in many ways.

Ever since Animal House movie came out I've been worried that I've been on double secret probation my whole life.

you have...  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :grouphug:

I've been there also, a few times...

I had a "boss" that pulled that trump card on me once, and when I found out I walked into H.R., and tended my resignation... and left... 2 weeks later after completing a $2,000,000. contract ahead of schedule..., 2 weeks later that stupid kid "boss" quit, because I did all the work....
16 months later, fed up with the job I took, as I was lied to severely about bonus', raises, and I busted my azz working non stop 70 hour weeks filling the Director's/Stock Holders pockets, I called my old job up, talked to the Pres., and they hired my back with a 20% increase in salary... and... gave me a Christmas Bonus check a week later, that was 5x more than the "bonus" I was supposed to get the day I quit that job... which was the frosting on the cake for me telling them "Elvis Has Left The Building"....

I love the ones with the slide cutter.

The wife has a container like thing that you drop any box of wrap into and it has a slide cutter built into the top of it. I must say, it's pretty slick. Never even have to take the stuff out of the drawer to use it.
