Winter tire passed on

Coming into work this AM, one of my winters decided it was time to pass. Seems to be a good time to get some winters with the season almost over. Will be swapping out to my summers when I get home.

Peace.

My sincere condolences to you and your tires. Alas that tire had a good fulfilling life and will be remembered dearly.

I appreciate the support. It was a hard but very longevity life. DOT 3112 Michelin Alpin Pilot PA4s

8 years old. I knew time was coming but I didn't suspect it would be today. Even though you prepare and you know it's coming, it's still very annoying. Good thing I wasn't on the 400 series. The minute the ass started to wobble. I knew. I knew.

RIP rear driver side tire. Soon, your brethren will be joining you in the giant rubber factory in the sky.

I should have updated when I swapped over to my summer dunlops on Wednesday evening. I found a screw in the tire that passed. Funny there wasn't any leak, just instant croak.

Also for anyone interested, tires were manufactured in Hungry, all mixed week DOTs but all in 2012.

Ah, I thought it was a dramatic parting of ways, lol. Guess I read into it too much, lol ;)
