Unhappy POTHOLES!

Never mind 2014. Maybe I won't bother putting the car on the road.
Holy smokes, the potholes we're getting this year!

Potholes? All I see are craters!

Mound is perhaps the worst offender.

Yeah, they are super deep this time around. I have to drive my M5 like I'm drunk, swerving wildly from lane to lane on the highway.
And guess what? We're not done with the freeze/thaw/plow cycle yet!

On a positive note, they are a lot more fun if you pronounce them po-THO-le (like guacamole) when you call the DOT to fix them.

"Yes, can you please send someone to fix the po-THO-le on the 3rd block of Main?

"The what?"

"Po-THO-le!"

"Can you spell that?"

"Are you stupid?"

Maybe I'll re-fit the 14s on the 308 this year...

WeldCraft (where they identified me as a "repeat offender" the last time I was in there) had bumper stickers that said "I'm not drunk, I'm just avoiding the potholes".

I have already had to deal with a blown tire in my winter car. I just want winter to end already so I can take my fun car out.

whenever i purchase new tires, i get road hazard insurance.
the insurance has saved me quite a bit of money, especially on lo profile tires.

Amen to that. I never got it until I moved to Michigan, now I do all the time.

Angry Ohio pothole this time!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another stupid pothole gets the front right FF wheel ... although this time it broke a weld from a previous wheel repair that was done by a company in Ohio. Fortunately it happened two hours ago so my language during this post will not get me banned for life!

The wheels are expensive but I think I am done with getting wheels repaired. The tire itself seems OK.
