So I was heading up to Sheetz with some friends and my drivers side front tire flies the **** off. No wobbling or any sort of warning, just popped right off. The XJ wobbles a bit and we're all like, "what the ****," and all of a sudden the front end drops and we see the wheel go over the median (wound up rolling like another 100 yards on its own lol) and for me everything goes into slow motion. I keep the wheel straight, let it slow down before I hit the brakes, finally hit em after we dropped to about 30 mph and sparks start shooting out the side. Kept the wheel straight til about 10 then slowly steered it off to the side of the road (ironically right in front of sheetz
). No one got hurt luckily.
So I head into sheetz to get a phone book, call the non emergency police, they send a cop out. Go figure its the cop who pulled me on my scooter for not wearing a helmet last year. He's basically useless other than calling a tow truck for us.
30 minutes later they get my XJ on the tow truck, the cop leaves, and we head to my house and the ****er informs me it's $194 and they only take cash. Who the **** has $194 cash at 12 o'clock at night? I can either pay him $194 now or he takes it to impound where I can get it the next day, only its got no front tire so it'd be another $194 to get it home. Only I work out of town all week starting tomorrow so it'd have to sit in the lot for a week for $50 a ****ing day. Luckily I'd grabbed $100 earlier that night and my mom (had it towed to her house up the road, like 2 miles
) just happened to have $90 on her at the house.
So, in the end it cost me more to tow the damn thing home than its gonna cost me to replace the rotor and stick one of my other tires on the front. Only good part about today is I got to rescue a stuck H2lol when I was wheeling
Sorry, no pics, my cell camera blows and it was too dark to take anything.
