    And I run across a pawn shop with a set of 38x15.50-15 SX's. About half to three-quarter tread. Sidewalls good, holding air on some ugly AR directionals...Curiosity piqued, I asked the owner how much for the tires. He says (with a straight face) "1200 bucks, 1400 with the wheels." I had to laugh, then realized that this dude was dead serious. I tried to tell him that that was about a grand worth of tires NEW. No way. 1200 bones. WTF?? What makes it more unbelieveable, same shop had a Snap-on tool box, ball bearing drawers, not a ding or scratch...150 bucks. Like Jim Morrison said...'People are strange'

Off comes the drivers side wheel/tire/what's left of the axle. The dude was in tears, couldn't figure out (insert Nancy Kerrigan voice) "Why ME? Why ME?" Been an eventful day, and it isn't even NOON!
