It seemed like the van was handling a bit strange, and having to hold the wheel cranked to the left didn’t seem right either. At first I thought something popped off on the front suspension. It was either that, or someone brutally rammed into the van over night, thus destroying the chassis (and I somehow skipped over the damages). Very good and profoundly reasonable guesses, no doubt, but I decided to be empirical and pulled over to physically look. Sure enough, it was just a flat. Not too bummed about it, these tires held up pretty well given their age and poor condition.
It’d be wise to change all 4 tires… because it wouldn’t be much fun if one of them blows up on me half way to Thunderhill and in the middle of no where… We’ll see, I’m usually cheap when it comes to more important things like this, though.
