I have changed quite a few tires in my life so, it wasn't too bad. I was able to get the donut on the car with no problems in 18 minutes start to finish.
I was surprised that NO ONE stopped to help or ask if I was ok. I had pulled off into a side street but there were probably 8 people that passed me as they pulled into work.
Maybe it was the mechanix gloves I wore when I was swapping out the tires. Gloves are a must if you live in the desert because my tires always seem to blow out when the weather is HOT and the tire hotter.
I do remember a time about 10 years ago when I was driving my convertible and I had a blow out. Hmmm...I had 3 males helpers on me like white on rice. Sigh....ah, I guess I am officially past the ingenue stage of my life. (Duh, already knew that!)
Good thing I wore comfortable shoes and pants today instead of the heels and skirt I wore yesterday so I was able to use brute kicking strength to loosen the lug nuts.
P.S. Garage now has the "new rubber" smell.
