Thanks again for being so awesome.
I'd check the oil level and wait until I got home. Also ... check the coolant and transmission levels too. Take Dexron III for the transmission and any Ethylene Glycol coolant will be fine for the trip home.
Tires are expensive. However, on one bus I bid on I knew the tires were not safe to get home, and I found a local commercial tire shop that would have changed them right after pick-up. They had re-cap drives for around $200 each and new steers for around $250 ... That's a $1300 bill straight from the lot, so allow for it in the bid price.
I didn't buy that one so I was okay in the end.
