    “Idiots at the tire store”. You’re so right Scotty, I won’t take my car to Tires Plus (I call them Tires Minus) anymore cuz they didn’t know what they were talking about yet they wanted to charge me $6000.00 for a job a real mechanic did that only set me back about $700. The are amateurs at those places. I’ll never go back.

    I had a problem with my tires. They never got it right. So the next time I took it in I removed all the weights. They finally got it right. Part of the problem is instead of removing weight and starting from scratch they just keep adding weight.

    5:33 I was surprised to see that they even mounted the tire correctly on the wheel. I noticed the red dot on the tire was in line with the valve stem, which is correct. So the only problem was that the person did not remove the weights from the tire before checking the balance. I had 2 tires mounted by Firestone and they did not align the dots and had a ton of weights on the wheel. I got the manager and had them remount both correctly.

    I worked for various tire shops for five years and always used a torque wrench and usually torqued in steps. My work caught the attention of the owner one day which landed me side work for the Northern Virginia Porsche club chapter of which he was a member. I would rotate the freshly shaved tire on the wheel as many times as it took to get as close to a perfect balance with the least amount of weights as possible. Great tips and I got to drive some really nice track cars. 35 years later I still have pride in my work and never had to advertise for my businesses. It's extremely difficult to find a good shop now and after having my rotors warped by three shops from annual inspections I'm in the process of getting my license to do them.

Do you think I did that by applying a degreaser to clean them and put tire shine on them please let me know if it’s my fault or is their fault for selling me a faulty tire set?

    Gotta keep your eyes on them guys. One shop had a policy of putting a bit of grease on the hood latch assembly, but I stopped him, 'cause there was already a big glob still there from a previous visit, which I wiped off with his rag. Another time the kid tried to pry off the battery cell covers on a freedom battery and I stopped him b4 he tried to slip a screwdriver under the vent caps and told him, if you can't take 'em off with your fingers, they're not supposed to come off. Another bad habit they have is letting air out of your tires because the pressure is high, which happens when tires are driven, so I just tell them the tires are OK, don't touch 'em.
