Leaving work last night, I ran into a bit of a problem when I got to my truck in the parking garage.

The problem? My truck had a flat tire.

Upon a closer look, it was clear what caused this little problem.

Normally this wouldn't be a big deal. I have changed plenty of flats in my day and this one should have been no different. That was until I found out that I didn't have the right tool to take my hub cap off my wheel.

Needless to say, I had to make a call for some help and they came in style.

My buddies from Whalen Tire came runnin' and not only got my cap off...

But also did an awesome job of fixing my tire so I didn't have to mess with the spare.

So that bolt that I found...turned out to be a little bigger than expected...

The only place I can think of that I might have picked it up is the interstate somewhere in the construction.

Regardless, it is fixed and I have a huge thank you that I owe to Dean and Shane from Whalen Tire for stepping up and helping me out when I couldn't even help myself. I appreciate you guys a ton!
