That's a joke. Welcome to America, where businesses suck you in with such advertisements and rape you legally.

They lured you in with the discount then sell you the tires at msrp prices and charge you abundle for labor and sell you their insurance package by the time you done with paying, you wished that someone could just shoot you for a quick death.

considering i used to sell ALOT of tires many yrs ago, i try and use discount when buying tires, they price them very well.

unforn. they don't carry Toyo which i run on 1 car, and don't have the machinery (except 2 stores) for my Run-Flats. but i do let them rotate my tires for free and send my friends there for tires.

A person, female, I know got charged $500 for a tire.
They sold her everything that they could, tire at msrp price, mount & balance, insurance, tire disposing. Just a regular 17" Michelin MX4 tire. They tried to sell her all four tires and the others are still at 80% good. They say, well, this one might throw off the alignment if she doesn't change the other's out.

so who's fault is that for buying it, and did you inspect her tires before she went there? who know's the actual condition of the tires?

and MX4's come in all sizes , so of course there's diff prices to boot.

and worn tires got worn somehow, a bad align, will just wear those new tires down just like the old.

do you ? the prices at walmart? why not? like anything be a smart consumer.

her fault for bring it there. I inspected her tires and found 3 nails in one tire. I told her to have it replace since it is at location where patch or plugs couldn't fix.
Females don't know jack about cars and they bring to the best looking, biggest shop or the most heard about shops to have their car fixed. I coulda save her $200 had I did all the work for her.
