Bought my first set of replacement tires and front disc brake pads & rotors at ~42K miles in Aug from smart Center Cary.  The key to low wear is anticipate stops, go easy on the brakes, and keep your tires slightly overinflated vs. manufacturer specs.  Mechanic found a slightly bent right front wheel rim, but the service tech was not able to verify my wheel warranty obtained at purchase.  I later provided a copy of the warranty purchase, and smart Center Cary replaced the bent wheel at no charge when I brought it back in Oct for an NC State Inspection.  All good.

Will hit 40K miles this week, and had 4 Key servicing last week at smart Center Cary.  "Thanx" to technician extraordinaire, Matt C. for keeping "Pete" in great mechanical condition!  Need to get new tires and front disc brake pads before Winter driving begins.  Otherwise, still enjoying driving ~250 trouble-free miles/week, and spending only ~$20/week on fuel!

My first Microcar (above) - a '59 Autobianchi Bianchina 140-B, based on the FIAT 500 Nuova.  Who really needs more than 2 cylinders and 20 HP?
