Tire incident

I was driving to work and suddenly heard an explosion. The car lost balance and I had to stop on the side. Apparently I hit the road barrier that are everywhere to slow down the traffic. So, catastrophe, my carpoolers changed the tire for me. Such a luck to start a week.

Today hubby had to go to a garage, and the tire will cost 280 euros. He called the garage in his parents' town, and the price is 180 euros. That is why we never trusted any garage here, as they simply charge exorbitant price if you don't know them.

So, we will have to make a trip to L-town this coming weekend. Including this weekend, we will have gone to this town 3 weekend continuously. I'm so not motivated.

Anyway knows a nice garage that will not overcharge in Nantes?

  1. Hi Bee Ean,

    Relieve that you are OK.
    EUR180 for a replacement tire? I think it cost about £40 here (or around EUR 50)...

  2. I don't know why our car tires are so expensive. In France usually you have to change two tires at the same time for balance reason, more money out of pocket!
