Wanted: A good used 205 75 r15 trailer tire for 48 Ugly*
This scene is becoming all too familiar…
Memphis Red is having two more used tires replaced. She also needs an oil change, an alignment, new tires, and a new paint job. I’ll certainly get the oil change in a couple days…
I think Memphis Red may be preparing for her last journey. With easily $2500 of needed improvements in the near future, I just can’t see me doing it. Here’s why:
1. Power : I simply don’t have enough for towing on steep grades. The alternate routes I’m forced to take sometimes cost a good deal of unnecessary expenses. I always dread the day I blow a transmission or a motor.
2. Cargo : It’s not an ideal cargo van, which is what I need. Even though she’s eight foot tall, I’d be afraid to pile things too high for fear of being crushed should I slam the brakes. Lengthwise it’s very short, also not ideal. The shape, cabinetry, and windows can also impede things when I’m trying to load. I need an actual cargo space for my future business productions.
3. Squeaky Belt : It’s a factory defect and there’s nothing you can do when it gets wet. I’ve replaced pulleys and belts numerous times with only minimal success. I can put chalk on it after each rain, which only works until the next one. Years of these occurrences has led to the demise of the sentimental value I once had for Memphis Red. It’s just getting to be that time…
Wanted : A good used 205 75 r15 tire.
It’s amazing how difficult it is to find a 205 75 r15. If you have 1 or 2 laying around, just e-mail them to me!
