This past December my boyfriend bought four new, all season tires for my car.

I asked him, "are you sure you want to do that?" It was quite a hefty price to pay, considering there was nothing really wrong with the tires I had.

Besides, with how Rockford roads are, I'd prefer to just drive on them until there's that one day where I'm not paying attention, hit a pothole, and wreck a wheel.

That day could've been yesterday for you and there's a good chance it cost you quite a bit.

According to, thanks to rocky roads, lost fuel due to traffic congestion and lost time, you're spending $1,935 a year on car repairs.

Chicagoans pay the most at $2,485 annually, and Springfield pays the least with $1,439.
