        At the end of the report where they say tire shops aren't regulated by California something-something, that means if something similar like this goes down you can't do anything about it price wise? Even if it was a bait and switch?

            That's why you get a written estimate first.

              There are still good tire shops out there of course... I usually buy tires directly from TireRack and have them ship to a good local tire shop that I've been using for years. Local VW/Audi/BMW dealers use them as well, so they do good work and good service!

              But this was interesting to see, I've seen their ads on CL all the time with stupid low prices....

                This is a very "loose" word in business terms and is why a lot shops can get away with this kind of stuff without any consequential penalties.

                      John has no problem with immigrants. Just the mentality of the ones who come here and think they are better then you. Unfortuneately there are a shit ton of them in LA.

                        The fear and reputation of a burning cross would be lost on these major-league asshats! But if anyone's business deserved a fire-bombing, it would be douche nozzles like this who should get a truckload.

                        I understand that tire stores, like most retail shops these days, face tough competition - from each other and online sales. But to employ shady, bait-n-switch tactics is complete BS. Spitting and defending your shoddy business practice not only makes you look guilty, it's indicative of a third-world mentality. :hitler:

                        The fact that the video mentions they are from Pakistan urged me to label them, "immigrants". Perhaps you would have felt better if I used the term, "terrorist"?

                        BTW, as Einstein57 can attest, I am several darker shades away from white myself. But I've long admired your screen name, BB, it makes me chuckle everytime I see it. :up:

                            That's messed up but nothing new. Disposal (some places resell you're old usable tires), valve stems (if you need them or not), mounting / balance, taxes, credit card price, etc. There's a lot of room there to get over on an unsuspecting customer. If 7 out of 10 are like the guy in the story who just paid to get out of there, then the shop has accomplished what they wanted.
