Listen up, fellow budgeters.
As you know, I’m all about being financially prepared for the irregular expenses in life. One of the many expenses I point out when discussing irregular expenses (those that don’t happen monthly but do occur on a regular and somewhat predictable schedule) is tires. Yup, new tires for your vehicle(s).
My family owns two Subarus. We love them. We’re Subaru devotees. But being a Subaru owner means being prepared to replace four tires all at the same time. Unlike 2-wheel drive cars, a Subaru owner cannot switch out tires keeping the two best and replacing the two showing the most wear. Nope. Subarus are all-wheel-drive [AWD] vehicles. On a Subaru if you need new tires, you need four new tires all at the same time.
