Car Continued

Well, now I am totally screwed. I got my tires changed over to my summer tires, and the tire guys told me that I would need to buy new tires soon. Then the rest of the way home, my steering wheel was shaking, so we dropped it off at the mechanics to have a look at it. We asked him to look at the tires as well, to get his opinion on how soon they needed to be changed. Well, it turns out that I was 20000 km over the wear line, so he said I needed new tires right away. It also turns out that one of the rims on my summer tires was wrecked. So now I have to buy four new tires, and a new rim. Tori is buying the rim for the snow tire. I have just enough money right now as it is to pay rent, insurance, car loan, and student loan, and our hours at work are being cut. I am going to work part time for the Gardening Angels as soon as the season opens, which will help, but as of now, I am screwed. Mom is going to put the tires and rim on her credit card, and I am going to have to pay her back. It will be over $600 as the tires are $120 each, and the rim will be over $100 as it has to come from the dealer. I am using moms truck to get to work tommorow, and I hope the car will be ready after that, beacuase she said I can only have the truck one more day. But it depends on when the tires and rim come in, and when he gets the alignment done, and checks the brakes. Does anyone know of a good way I can get money (other than selling everything else I own, or getting a third job?)

UPDATE: Another rim is broken apparently. I think I shall sell my car and get a horse (I would prefer that anyways)

Poor you... Cars are such a pain. I just had to replace mine. I'm happy... but continue making payments for another 4 years.
