Flat on the Spot

Ever have that uneasy sinking feeling in the back of your head, driving down the road, thinking something might be wrong with your car, but hoping that sinking feeling will go away?  That happened to me recently and, no, it did not go away. 

For a few weeks my “Check tire pressure” warning light kept coming

in under two hours and called me with the bad news.  My tire had blown out from the backside and
could not be repaired.  I would need a
new tire.  Well shoot, not what I wanted
to hear.  However, I knew Jay was acting
ethically, looking out for my wellbeing by not throwing a quick patch job on my

Jay gave me my tire measurements and suggestions of where I
could call to get a replacement in town. Of course, nothing in stock and I had
to order one.  Once it arrived I again
called Flat on the Spot.  About 45
minutes later Jay called to let me know he was on the way. “WOW, these guys are

I met Jay at my house just as he was mounting the new tire
to the rim.   He checked the pressure,
the balance, the symmetry, then one more test that I don’t even know the name
of!  To put the cherry on the top, I
asked if he could check the pressures on the rest of my tires.  Without question or hesitation, it was
