You should have bailed when he said it was a better tire with no other
I'm fortunate to have a small independent tire shop in town that
really takes care of customers. He's been taking good care of the
family cars for 30+ years.
Glad it worked out for you in the end.
wanted, called the closest shop and then went in the next day. When I
got there, they "were out" of that tire. But had the next more
expensive in that type on hand for $15 more each. All the specs,
including speed rating, etc., were the same online. I asked what's the
difference, and was told "this one is a much, much better tire."
The first shop is the same one that aligned it last month, adjusting it
just barely within tolerance. Used to be an excellent shop with
long-time mechanics. Now all experienced sales people & mechanics are
gone. If it were not in such a good location, I would expect it to
close down. Will keep looking around here for a plain old garage where
you work directly with the mechanic.
