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.


No, no, no! You're supposed to grouse about how stupid young people are, and how they don't come out of the womb knowing how to do everything like you did!


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.

Let Frame & Axle guys do alignments and tire guys do tires!

Cummins12v98, that is exactly my thoughts. That is what get's Big O Tire here in Yuma, AZ in trouble. A person buys tires at Big O and then gets a whole laundry list of suspension parts that need replaced. Unfortunately they seem to prey on folks that have no idea of vehicles and they get taken to the proverbially cleaners.

Another vote for America's Tire/Discount Tire. Price is never an issue because they will match any online price if you find a tire cheaper. At least the ones in my area will. I also like the fact they don't do brakes, shocks, alignments, etc so there's never pressure to sell anything other than tires.

I used to buy my tires at Costco. Now only Discount Tire. If you notice there is usually a Discount/Americas tire near most Costco's.
