Blew my tire - HF#QFE

I blew my front passanger side tire today. Scared the shit out of me. Popped. I almost ran into the car on the right when the car jerked, and then almost hit the jersey barriar correcting. Meh!

Although, for what were suppossed 30,000mi tires, I'm at 50,691mi right now, and it finally popped. So I guess I got my money out of it.

And there's no damage to my rims, or the car. w00t w00t.

So big ups to Chris (focusedintentions) who came and helped me change the tire because I was freaking out after the incident.

It pisses me off that I can change a tire on someone elses car if need be, but when my tire popped I freaked out and called Chris crying.

I'm such a girl.

The ironic thing is, TJ was just looking at the treadwear on your front right tire at Matt's b-day weekend and we made the comment that the wear on your sidewalls shows that you like to take the corners kinda fast. Or his exact words may have been something to the effect of: "That's cuz she takes corners like an effing maniac!". I can't remember.

But I'm glad you are okay, Stephers!

Dude, I was trying to hold out to Christmas so my daddy would buy me the tires because I'm a broke college student.
