Should have asked him if he was a fan of rods while slowly unzipping. those knees would have never come near you.

So I got a flat tire on the way home from work. Called Discount Tire to see if they had the tires my car uses and figured I might as well replace both front tires since the other one was also 55k miles old and worn to shit, guy was like "Yeah we have those, they're $15X.XX apiece" and I'm pretty sure the first X was an 8. I got there and the guy at the counter asked if I remembered how much I'd been quoted for over the phone and I said "It was 150something". He charged me $150.00 each for the tires. I did not realize this was a name-your-own-price thing and now I'm pissed at myself for not saving more money. First world Jew problems.

Should have had the warranty, then you only had to pay for one tire.

Also, when I asked for a replacement tire he gave me like 20 dollars off as well.

Bro those tires were on my car when it left the factory in 2011. And warranties wouldn't be offered if they weren't sucker bets.

That's true in almost every case, except Discount Tire. That place is actually fucking awesome, and you can get free tires after they blow

I had a nail in a tire after buying the tire 6 months ago. Not repairable.

Free tire, not prorated.

I agree with not buying warranties most of the time, but Discount is worth it.

Second that discount tire warranty is awesome. You can even get it on factory tires (I did it with my new car). Free rotations, repair any problem, bring it by and they'll air the tire up in minutes...just all around good service.

Also, discount is very much "name your own price." I suspect most tire places are. Call a couple cheap tire shops and get the prices, and I've never had a problem convincing discount to match. This includes warranty.

Yes.

A lot of times when I come back they will give me a slightly better tire for the price I paid for the previous set because they didn't have the same tires in stock or whatever.
