At some point while driving out here. Actually now that I think about it was when I stopped in Texas. I noticed the driver side front tire was low on air. I went to put some air in it but the air thing didn't have any kinda of gauge on it. I had to guess as to how much how air to put in it. I am kinda thinking I guessed badly.

Yesterday we had to take the KIA to Nipper's. I start it up and I soon I start to back up I feel the car pulling a little. Like the steering wheel is bouncing and pulling. I have Kevin get out and look at it a little further down the road. He sees that I have way too much air in the tire. He lets some out. We start driving again but it's still doing the same thing, but, not quite as bad.

So, I need to take it in. Kevin says, get the tires rotated, balanced and tire pressure checked because I probably lost the weight from having the tire too full.

True, I forgot about that. I filled up the air the night before I came out to see you. I think at some point I lost the balance weight or something? At least that's Kevin's thought on the matter.

I have my moments. But, most of the time I'm kinda the sensitive cuddling type.

My own fault for being stupid. I meant to check the tire pressure every time I filled up with gas and I didn't. I would get back on the freeway after filling up and be a few miles down the road and think, shit! I forgot to double check the pressure. The one time I did think about it actually was leaving XxXotic's but it was raining at the gas station and I didn't see an air compressor thing.

Nah, I'm pretty good with bumps, the only real beating the car gets is doing 90 to 100 hundred cross country twice a year.

The KIA did not like the cross country drive again, its acting up since it knows you are going home soon!

My alignment is always off in my cars...I usually bend the rims on my tires by driving on a flat right after I get a new car thanks to the crappy tires that come with most new Chryslers...and I hit maybe 20 pot holes every time I get on the road.

car problems abound. when and got a new bacl window for the van and the idiots took almost 2 hours to pull it because they pulled the wrong one yesterday. finally get it and its not even tinted. on top of that i had to get a new tire cux my gf drove over a screw and it was too close to the sidewall to plug it. only goog thing is the warranty on the tires. only had to pay $4 to have it balanced and mounted

Kia Spectra

you likely hit a pebble or a small stone and bent the frame, don't worry though, it's easy to straighten them out, I heard they're made of tinfoil lol
