2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid: Re-Tired

November 03, 2011

As we saw in our last episode, our 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid recently lost the battle of the bulge, presumably with a west-side pothole. At least the Fusion's 50-series tire had enough sidewall to the keep the wheel from getting dinged.

But we can't say as much for our wallet, which got lightened by $270.52. That sum included the tire itself, mounting, balancing, tire disposal fees, a tire rotation and sales tax.

Days out of service: 0.5

After the car sat overnight, the new tire arrived at Stokes at 8:07 am this morning. I brought the car around at 9:00 am and was out of there by 9:30 am.

The only way it would have been any easier is if it had never happened at all.
