I don't disagree they're nearly junk but I just need them for winter, and even with less tread would be better in the snow that my current tires. I made them swap out a really really bad tire I had one, and the charged me $16 for it, 5 to mount, 3 valve stem and 8 to balance. I didn't tell them to balance the tire nor to put a valve stem in; nor did they ask.

I guess I can get around the valve stem, whatever can't hurt, but the 8 bucks for ballancing just was enough; it's not the cost itself, it's the principal. That, and it took over 2 hours for them to figure that out. When I got there, there was only one other car in the garage. Bull pucking shoot it takes 2 hours for that kinda work

Am I then only one that has issues (not the 1st time something like this has happened, but i didn't have much of a choice); or the only dumb enough to go to walmart for tire services?

Oh, end rant
You getting ready for the Mustache Run?
