your a crybaby.

im still waiting for you to name ALL of the shops you claim that do it for $10. you yourself said "everybody" charges $10. im sure patrick has an awesome price, thats no doubt, but that ONE, not "everybody".

most people are saying at least $25 each times two is $50. your whining about $20 at most. get a life. your probably spending $20 worth of your time crying in this thread.

i have the stuff to do it. next time just bring your tires out and will ASSIST you doing it yourself. costs nothing and have the satisfacton of doing it yourself.
In the spring will just have to have a tire changing party, i guess in the hanger

I am sure you have already heard this but you should have asked the price up front to avoid any confusion.

But I make a habit of telling all my customers up front what it is going to cost to avoid any suprises.

I am sure they weren't trying to scam you the money would hardly be worth the bad press they are now getting. Just my opinion.

I bet you will always ask the price from now on and hopefully they will too.

Bob is a good guy. No complaints from me. The one time there was a problem with a part ordered they got it resolved it for me without any additional problems or questions.

i don't know what it costs to change out a tire, but from the other posts it sounds like what you paid was in line.

in your original post you said..
"normally I deal with Patrick or Andy, but these guys were right down the road"
so you can say this time you paid for the convenience. :icon_bigg

too late guys, i think he allready has plans to write a letter to his congressman concerning this travesty and international act of what is clearly terrorism at work. surely, the $10 or $20 he may have overspent is obviously funding al-queda. there is no other explanable reason that an american citezin would be the victim of such a horrible crime against humanity.

maybe there is something our congressman can put into the patriot act to regulate the price of tire mounting and balancing, in order to protect this nations vulnerable consumers from the "claws of al-queda".

forbid what could happen to this country if this heresy continues, dealerships under the control of the terrorist regime might charging as much as $14 for an oil filter, dear lord. weve always known these treasonous bastards controled the oil, now we know why premium synthetic could cost as much as $30 for a gallon, the money goes to buy nuclear weapons and bombs to kill our troops overseas.

so i pray, let all us fearing christians band together! band together i say, let us plug our tires with flimsy patches until the cords show. * fade in patriot music here * let us simply remove links from our chains when they stretch to the very limits our swingarms will allow! let us scrub out old spark plugs with wire brushes instead of buying new ones! its is up to every american to do their part this day! we must do everything we can do keep our money away from the terrorists!!!!*insert fireworks exploding*

ok...this is getting dumb. do i need to keep going or can we lock the thread now?
