I was charged an upcharge for a tire rotation because my truck is a dually. They had to dismount and remount two tires to keep the white sidewall lettering to the inside. Seemed reasonable to me.


That is legit.

You try throwing around dually wheels and see if you don't think its worth spending a few more $$$$! People Spend $60-$90k on a truck and then get cheap when it comes to maintenance!

$20 per tire is excessive, but a dually should and does cost more to do a rotate. if shops aren't charging a bit more then they aren't a very good shop as it shows they don't pay attention.

I could stand under the extra charge for rotation; Easy to see where would need to break tires down to keep pretty sides of the wheels outside. But I read the OP as buying new tires. That would mean dismount/mount for each tire bought.
Now, are the offset wheels all that much heavier than the same capacity wheels that don't have the offset? All new tires on a single wheel, the tire monkey must protect the appearance and function of all wheels. With duals, a third of the wheels, only protect function

HMMMMM, I am betting my 17" DRW steel or Aluminum tire/wheel combo does not weigh much more than current 350/3500 trucks with 18-20".

Sam's Club upcharges to mount dually tires. Just why they don't do mine. Have bought 3 sets of tires for our dually from Discount tire. They would rather sell six tires, mount and balance all six, one vehicle in and out of shop for no upcharge. And by the way, that includes free rotation!

Scams Club and Costco can kiss my ____. The day I can’t buy the tire I want because it’s “not the stock size”, they won’t see me anymore.
Schwabs, Firestone and Badyear can also s uck it. Pretty much just upselling and ripping people off. Firestone been that way forever, Schwabs just in recent years.
Discount did good recently on the wife’s rig. And actually had the best price, including online buying and didn’t upselling her.
Big O was always good to me. Did me a solid with some GY Marathins that weren’t even their tires. But haven’t been there in a while.
Recently, Best Tire Centers around here have done great.
They’re not upselling dooshes. They don’t want extraordinary prices to do tire work.
They don’t send you packing because you are putting big tires on something. They didn’t rip off my son who is pretty gullible. And they beat the he!! Out of Scheabbys price on my last set of work truck tires. Place in Covington is what a tire shop SHOULD be!

Related to throwing heavy tires around..........
We hired a young man to do oil changes and tire rotations. He was a slight young man and HIS friend that recommended him told him that he'd never be able to lift the heavy truck tires. He suggested that he should let the 70 lbs of air out of each tire before he moved them so that he didn't hurt himself, and then refill them with "new" air.
The young man did as what was suggested for several vehicles before one of the guys took pity on him and filled him in on the prank.

I've never had a bad experience at Discount Tire. I just wish that they did front end alignments. I'm retired so Sunday openings aren't necessary.

Love this kinda stuff!! So many funny stories out there just like this. It sucks being the new guy. Have to have a thick skin.

Not many young people have a thick skin anymore though.
