I had a blow out today while on the Interstate. There was a two inch hole in my front right tire.
I realize this is probably the result of hitting a curb or pot hole last week (we had noticed a "bubble" in the tire two weeks ago and we had totally forgotten to fix it due to some serious illness in the family). I guess I'm wondering if either of the things that I previously mentioned could have the effect of making the tires more susceptable to experience a blow out. Here's another problem. Yesterday I used the emergency brake while parking on a hill. Forgot to release it until I started smelling burning rubber on the back right tire. . It's difficult figuring out what the priority should be. It's very important to make it as safe as possible due to the fact that my sons and I will be travelling 150 miles RT several days a week for the next 90 days. I'll pay you for the answer if you could just give me a reasonable estimate I might expect. Does $250 sound right for front shocks,$350. for labor? $100.for rotors, plus & $120 for labor? Thanks.
