    Discount Tires. $670- 4 tires or $777- 4 tires and wheels?????

    Well, the son had a flat on his Matrix so we took it to Discount. He was on lo-pro 225/45ZR18's. Well, the 2 fronts were $335 on the car......OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    THe young man at Discount started workin numbers. THe backs were worn too so I would need them in a few months and was looking at $670 for just tires. He worked out the number on some closer to stock size 205/55r16 tires, cut the price a little, found some rims the boy liked at $82 each and found none in stock but had the Konig's at $108 each but cut them to match the others. All said and done, he got me to $777 and change for 4 tires and rims. Paid the man and left to go eat.

    Got back and they had the rims on BUT, the lugs and locks I had did not fit on the different rims so they put on new but since he had not told me, he didn't charge me.

    Now, I have had a really bad week, the wife is leaving tomorrow on a business trip and...well, funds are tight as she goes to England after this trip to help our daughter with the delivery of the baby, so I am already stressed and have not made this easy on the poor guy. I am looking at my papers and there are no certs. I am upset as I know we had talked about it and I was under the understanding that I was getting them, I never, NEVER, buy without them. Well, I am pissey and brought it up, he was uber cool and explaind that was part of the cuts to get the price down and I am still complaining and throw crap and he offers to give them free and I tell him thats not the point, he knew I wanted them yada yada, whine whine.......He said he would do whatever he needed too to make it right.....

    I finally grew up and asked if they would split the cert cost, paid him $35.99 (yes he offered free but I felt guilty and didn't think it was fair to them) and Ben and I headed out.


    Once again, Discount comes thru even when I am in a bad mood and being a jerk. You just can't beat the service and dedication, guess thats why everything I have has been thru them.

    So, the Discount at Power and 60, Thank you very much Jesse for putting up with this old man.

    Old rims (going to sell them):

    Good deal man, however I wont be buying my next set of tires from Discount tires thats for sure. Funny how they sold me a set of BFG KM2 for my Jeep back in April of this year and Im running Spidertraxx wheel spacers with my Rubi wheels. At the time they installed them on my Jeep I even had the Spidertraxx wheel spacers on the Jeep and they never said anything about them. I was over in Goodyear a few months back and decided since I needed a oil change I'd go ahead with a rotation/balance. They told me they wouldnt touch the Jeep since I'm running wheel spacers, which pissed me off since the one in Surprise installed them with no problem. So yeah I went back to the one in Surprise and BS them out, they told me its a new policy they started. So yeah I will not be buying tires from them anymore, I will def go back to Purcell Tires instead.

    18" wheels > 16" wheels, especially on that car. Gotta pay to play.
    Well I was drunk, the day my mom got outta prison...

    Yep, thats why we went down to 16. We bought the car with the 18's and it was nice, but......
