Is their tire made of recycled condoms from Wilt Chamberlain's hotel rooms, and installed by tire technicians anointed by the pope himself?
I always buy online and mount my own.......this was an emergency situation 1200 miles away from home. $250 for tire and $70 to mount and balance.... Even showed them I could get the same tire for $120 on line.............not so much as a blip on the dealers give-a-shit-o-meter.
