New Tyres

Posted by Kero at Sunday, November 07, 2010
Any frugal car-owner would wince on the post title. ((^_^))

After three years and 90,000 kilometres, our beloved SUV got an "overdue" Christmas present - four new Bridgestone Dueler HT. Oh I had been nagging Hubby about this and we should have done it last year but money is tight and Hubby says that UAE has good roads so there's not much to worry. Plus we do not bring the car for off-road activities and its maximum passenger capacity was never abused. Morover, it is regularly serviced in Toyota Center.

On Friday, after leisurely exploring Al Qasba in Sharjah, Hubby noticed three small cracks on the left front wheel. We took it as a sign that it's time to buy new ones. We reach Dubai at sundown and we dropped by our favorite Emarat petrol station in Trade Center Road.





Bridgestone Dueler HT with Outlined White Letters. Each tyre costs 850 AED. Tip: Always ask your tyre dealer if they are manufactured on the present year.


 Well, there is obviously nothing left for Christmas budget but what's important is I am less worried when Hubby is on the road.

Car maintenance is quite expensive, but our safety is more important. Visiting here for MYMJ too.
