Wheels and Deals

in dessert, dinner, soup/stew, take out, vegan

So AAA came, and told me I needed to get new tires. I absolutely adore Melrose Tires and Hubcaps; if you watch the video on their site you’ll see why. They’re fast, affordable, family-owned and friendly. I was there for less than 10 minutes, they cut me an excellent deal, and even offered a slice of watermelon!

None taken, though – was still feeling my seven plates from Book Club, plus I had a Groupon Now massage scheduled at Sogang.

AAA saved my butt so many times! They are a necessity for all L.A. drivers.

LOVE Melrose Tires!
Found them on Yelp back in January and wrote my very first review because they were so awesome. Glad it worked out for you!
