In praise of buying used

Several weeks ago, I had to buy tires for Wild Bill, my old F150. As is the norm, things did not go as smoothly as I had hoped.

I bought a set of tires and rims only to discover that they didn’t fit!

So, I had to buy 3 more tires.

I finally got around to putting the tires and rims on Craig’s List at 1:30 this afternoon. I just sold them about 30 minutes ago and made a $25 profit!

So, the final accounting is three tires with less than 10,000 miles on them mounted and balanced for $91. Not too bad!
