Buying Tyres online

Over the past 11 years Daddy and I have been together we have had our fair share of cars. Daddy was the first one to pass his driving test, we got given a free car by a family friend, it was red Ford Escort. it was 11 years old when we got it, well it wasn't long before we realised the reason we got given it for free, at the time Daddy was working in Manchester so needed a car to get to work, the first thing that went on it was the alternator on the way whilst Daddy was picking me up from work, then the day before we were due to get a new car the clutch went on it while Daddy was on the motorway in the outside lane on the way to pick me up. Daddy got it towed home we then got £30 for it to be taken for scrap. We had it from the December 2004 to the July 2005

Our second car was a green Citroen Xsara. when we first got it we thought it was better then sliced bread, it was going to be perfect for when Kacy arrived and the pushchair and for traveling down south for a little holiday for our first Anniversary of being together, at first the car was fantastic but it soon started to fail on us, the first thing that failed on us was the ECU. well luckily at the time we lived on a street with a garage at the end, but that took 2 weeks to be fixed due to having to be sent to am automobile electrician to find out what was wrong with it, with Daddy still working in Manchester and being in the middle of no where in Manchester it took him 3 hours to train it home which wasn't the greatest.  Then it was the dreaded MOT I remember being at a soft play centre with a friend and her daughter and I got the phone call to tell me for it to pass its MOT it was going to cost me £500 which of course we paid, it took us a while to save up for another car especially with our wedding soon, well I found I was pregnant again on our honey moon so then we had to move so that put the car on hold, we moved house then looked for a new car before Kira arrived due to the car needing to go in the garage yet again because it wouldn't always start first time we managed to part ex it. We had the Citroen from July 2005 to March 2008

Our next car was the Honda Jazz I loved this car but every 6 months we were forking out for a new tyre, we tried so many garages and different tyres to see if that would solve the problem with no luck but having to fork out for one or two tyres every 6 months at £50-£70 each time was getting ridiculous, we didn't know what we were doing wrong but then we found out the price range was right but it was the type of tyre we were getting slightly wrong, so then we knew what tyres we need to get for our car, I got told about this website called Point.s where you could buy tyres online where you put in the measurements and get them sent to a local garage and they would fit them at a time that would suit you which was even better, well soon after we got the tyres sorted our gear box broke which cost £800 that is with our one being refurbed and that was cheaper a couple of months after that I had a crash which it was going to cost to much to repair. We had the Honda from March 2008-January 2015

The car we have at the moment is a Ford Focus C Max and touch wood except from a few minor things we haven't had to fork out loads of money for it.
