This diary will be a bit rambling. Just hastily shoving a bunch of stuff that came to mind today out there as food for thought.
If someone with an Obama website account could suggest in the appropriate forum that a good campaign event would be to hold a side-of-the-road "car wash" type event where Obama volunteers inflate people's tires for free (and talk up/leaflet energy policy) ... I just haven't gotten around to making an account or exploring the forums there.
I wonder how many Exxon execs are fuming at McCain right now for putting tire pressure in the public spotlight. They've got this collapsing demand problem at the moment, you see...
PIBI stands for Pride In Being Ignorant. Or Proud I Be Ignrent. Pass it on.
More than you ever wanted to know about tires after the bump.
Does anyone sell leather punches with "McCain's anti-inflation plan" written on them yet?
How sooner-the-better can these come to market?
What follows is recycled but the links still work. I imagine the more PIBI McAndroids will try to argue against Time Magazine, The U.S. Government, and just about everyone about things tire related. If you want to bone up may I suggest this very thorough study in e-book form. The link takes you to direct to the conclusions section but if that doesn't saturate your interest it is easy to back up to previous chapters.
The upshot is that, when buying new tires, most of the low rolling resistance tires that are going to give you the best mileage are all-seasonals in the "V" or lower speed class and "A" traction class. W, Y, Z speed classes and AA traction classes will cost you gas, so unless you really do intend to drive 100mph in the rain, don't get those.
And I see chat some Focus owners have managed to procure these in the U.S. already?
Finally, in thanks for paying attention to my meanderings, have a little two-face on me.
