not sticking

It's not sticking to the roads yet.

I mounted the snow tires yesterday (whew!)...on the P!G. I had to go back to the dealer to enquire as to the key for the wheel lock. I think they lost/misplaced it when I had the new summer wheels mounted and balanced. Oddly, they just happened to have a spare key that fit my wheel lock....hmmmm I wonder where that came from?

When I woke up this morning I thought I was still dreaming.. where did that come from out of a sudden. I'm still on summers and will pick up my winters near Munich wednesday next week. At least thats the schedule, we'll see how the weather influences that.

No winters by 1 october? That's very UN German of you....shame shame tisk tisk.

If your worried about the weather going up the A8 I can easily carry you and the tires in the Tutonic rocket sled.

Sorry for being un-german, but I have the habit to be more american than german quite often . I was kinda hoping with that good weather we had that I could stall the change until after my trip to texas in 2 weeks, but thats not gonna happen .

It will easily carry 4 tires as long as they are no wider than 275x19.

Hint it shares some parts with Audi and VW. Pound for pound it is the least expensive model offered. It drinks gas like Hemmingway consumed whiskey. Looks like a fat overweight hippo but moves like Katerina Witt.

I am on leave this week. My father inlaw would love the drive up A-8.

We can swap out the wheels on your car at my house. I have a lift and good quality torque wrench.

PM me if you need a lift.

BTW K-STATE WINS.....EMAW!

Yes. He previously had an injury on the other knee, this time it was his healthy knee which is terrible. I really feel for the kid.
