I was out late last night jamming with some buddies. drank too much for a weekday... dehydrated, headache, and it's pouring rain. So, I'm in the middle lane driving, cars on both sides of me. suddenly, there's a ratchet strap or something in the road. no where to swerve... yup, it's inevitable.... BOOM and then the low air light comes on slow down, limp it to the next exit because i'm not stopping on a no shoulder highway in the pouring rain ok... i got mechx gloves and a jacket, i can take care of it. The rain is more of a drizzle now... pop open the trunk to get the spare and tools out, remove the carpeting, and it's full of water. wtf. So, now i need to bring my car back to the body shop from the accident and tell them to fix their shoddy work. gotta deal with insurance again to have their lifetime warranty cover the repair. But back to the matter at hand... damn, these lugs are fucking cranked on here. I used my torque wrench to install them back in the spring, shouldn't be that crazy. But the little wrench supplied with the car just offers no leverage. Foot kick it, hand-hammer, nothing. Rain is picking up... time to call in the pros. looked who's near by and made a call. 3 min later the wrecker was there. quite impressive actually. He struggles with the lugs too. ended up with a 3 foot lever on the thing, so i'm glad it wasn't just me being a wuss. The lugs were all rusty for some reason. $60 later, ($53+tip) I have my spare on. This is why you carry cash folks. Small shops like this don't take cards. but it's nearly flat. fml. Luckily, I was 30 yards from a gas station and was able to get air. I do have to say, the spare is pretty hot. basically an 18x4 HX wheel (i'll take a pic later) The tire is toast, i drove on it too long and the sidewall is chewed. gonna need a new one. I'm probably just low enough where i can't just replace one either, so i'll need 2 new fronts. that's $400. :/ i'll deal with that in the spring (if i still have the car). Just gonna limp home tonight on the spare and put the snows on a little early this year.. Hopefully I won't have the same issues with the other lugs. At least at home i have a big breaker bar. so, PSA, check and fill your spare if you haven't done so in a while. it's probably low.
