Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again!

    I met my old Mustang club for lunch in Oakdale, CA and, on the way home, I noticed that my roof boot was flapping on the driver's side. Slid off Hyw.99 at the Central Lodi exit and pulled to the curb to reaffix the boot. As I pulled off the curb I got a big "Wop, wop, wop" from the right rear and there I was, stuck in Lodi. I have to give props to both AAA, who came out and changed my tire, and to Les Schwab in Lodi, who repaired my road tire in record time at no charge. I asked how much a replacement B.F. Goodrich T/A radial would cost (just in case there was some horrible damage to my road tire) and the guy said "We don't sell that tire here.", which only increased my admiration for Les Schwab. I bought the tires years ago at America's Tire, but there ain't no stinkin' America's Tire in Lodi. Probably one of the last towns in CA without one. Fortunately I didn't run out of travelin' money and my plans didn't fall through (Credence Clearwater).

    When I lived in Washington state EVERYONE I came in contact with recommended Les Schwab for tires and alignment service. They were right, I was really, really impressed at every store I was a patron. They REALLY hustle and are ALL about customer service. Since Ive moved to the South the next best thing Ive found is Discount tire. They don't do alignments but they are usually able to recommend a good shop. Safe travels.

    Careful Ken. Some of our tire sizes are no longer made. Be prepared by finding on online and note how to order one in an emergency.

    I'm running 215/70R 14 B.F. Goodrich Radial T/As on the Mustang. My spare was the pick of the litter when I replaced the 185/75R 14 WWs that were on the car 18 years ago when I purchased it. The ones on the car now are probably well over eight years old, but I know that they are available from both America's Tire and Tire Rack. They're the only 14" RWL tires with an American manufacturer's name on them, which I wanted for the vintage effect. My previous RWLs were excellent Firestone Firehawks, but they stopped putting the company name on them after the ugliness with Ford over the Exploders rolling over. Much better tires than the BFGs.
