Just ran into an unusual problem(in other words normal for me)
Changing the oil in my wife's Audi and while under there looked back noticed odd treadwear on the inside of the driver's side rear tire.
Went back and took a look and noticed it was on the wrong way (directional tire).
Found weird tread wear on the front driver's side tire too, also on wrong.
The passenger side tires directional arrows were correct.
Each tire says "outside" on the sidewall so these are also asymmetric too.
That means the car came from the factory with 4 passenger side specific tires on it.
Called the dealer and they're going to replace them all on their dime (really not as it will be a warranty claim)
Stuff like this seems to happen only to me.

small, small world. I've run into people in the weirdest places (like Brooklyn College ) that oddly enough have stories about Hawley.

knock on wood they've been really good so far and unlike other service departments at just about every previous place I've bought a car I actually get a good feeling from them. I get uneasy when I feel I know more than the dealer about the cars they sell.

This would been the way the car came from the factory as these are still the stock tires as we've only had it for a bit over a year. I'm not surprised the dealer didn't notice, I mean who the hell would as it's not a normal screw up.
Have them swap mudders on now?

Yep, Dennis will hardly notice the difference. But there's plenty of race tracks if any are looking for shutterbugs.

Yeah, we should have a good time. Iv'e never seen the Museum or the Memorial. It's always been on my bucket list.

When the weather is good I like to ride and put on miles. When it's not I like to destination ride. Winter, I become a tourist.

Can we go back to the Bedford Resort? You and beantop holding hands as you strolled thru the sitting room brought a tear to my eye.
