It won't make it

Even though the tire was still semi-inflated, I changed to my spare tire. Damage was already done, apparently. I finally found a tire place that looked open (they had "closed" about 5 minutes before I got there) and they took a look. Not repairable, even just from driving too much while flat. Lovely nail and other assorted holes as well.

Anyway, I guess this is the inconvenient opportunity to upgrade the tires, anyway. At the prices quoted for replacing two of them with approximately what they have already, it starts to become "reasonable" to talk about replacing all four with better tires that don't have 21k miles on them. The WRX eats tires anyway, so I hear, so there is advantage to not just replacing two now and having to replace the other two at some point in the near future.

Or so I am starting to tell myself. Because of the hours of the automotive stores and whatnot... and the long weekend... the car will be offline until at least Tuesday. Which doesn't please me, but probably won't ruin my life. Corvis', however (no Dog Parks, no midday walks)...
