In article <3EB909E5.A2328A4nopsamfitter.com>, johsnopsamfitter.com says... > GF: "But there is an oil indicator lamp that tells you when to add oil..." > She drove with a big egg in the shoulder of a tyre for months in her old car. Complained that it felt a little awkward to drive. We went out one day, and as she got upto 50, I felt like I was getting bounced out of the passenger seat. I told her to turn round and drive home slowly. When we got home, I first checked that the wheel was seated properly, then I examined the the tread. Seemed OK, apart from one small area about an inch across, on the edge of the tread, rolling over to the shoulder was a 1/2 inch raised egg of tread that was like driving over a small kurb or speed bump on every rotation. She had real trouble believing me about how much danger she had been in. She did complain that handling got a little difficult arround 80. That was in a 1 litre Rover Metro. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot. http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
