I drove around for about three months with a bad front left wheel bearing that made a noise like a couple of marbles in a coffee can. Every time Willy Wilson got in my truck, he’d say, “You know, you should fix that or get it fixed. Won’t cost that much now. I could help you on Saturday, if you want...” I just heard it as so much blah blah blah and turned up the radio to drown out him and the bearing noise. When I finally got to the Ford dealer they told me that I was going to need new front bearings and new front tires because the loose wheel had caused the tread to wear quickly and unevenly.
