Wife ran over a screw a month ago.. no repair of the tire. Put on 4 new shoes. This morning... I have to take her to work... Low tire. She of course said she didn't run over anything. Well there is a large screw thru the sidewall. I decided since it was her car to get the 49 dollar road hazzard for replacing the tires.. It has only been a month.

Hazzard? Is this a Duke thing going on here?

Your wife has excellent vision and reflexes, if she can see a screw in the road and manage to run over it at highway speeds -


intentionally.



Accidents happen.


I was going to teach my wife how to properly plug a tire, but I decided it was just as easy to do it myself. I don't tell her, when I plug my tires on my van. That way she thinks that she is the only one that intentionally runs over things in the road.
