But Wal Mart has the lowest prices on motor oil! Don't you get sucked in when you go inside, all the yellow smiley faces that say $.99 or $.50?!? All the cheap prices beg me to come back O_O

3/32" isn't unsafe to use as a winter tire?

I get all my tires swapped to new rims at Walmart, usually in and out in about 30 minutes, and their price is better than anywhere else. It is the ONLY thing I have ever spent money on at Walmarts.

Wally World tore up my buddy's rims & bent his running boards while installing tires he purchased from them. He did get a nice check from their ins co though. As I've had a couple issues with sears.

As for buying other things from theit, I still buy my Mobil 1 from them and the Rem 870 I bought was $60 cheaper than anywhere else I looked. The WL sstore was even $40 less than the other wm stores. Just had to fill out all forms in duplicate and wait till the manager came and carried it out of the store for me.

Anyone who goes to a walmart tire center expecting quality and timely service should probably apply for a position as a greeter while they are there.

If you've already have nothing but issues going to Walmart, why did you expect this time to be any different? Why did you even go this time?

You're a moron for thinking bald tires are not unsafe, and a double moron for taking anything to Wal-Mart for service.
seriously guy? I think you're the moron, try reading s l o w e r next time

I said that the current tire I had on was about .5/32 tread; which is why it was swapped out.

I tried using wally world in greenville once when I was working near it. I wanted them to mount and balence tires I brought them on my cadillac fleetwood winterbeater.
They said they could not do it because the front and rear had to be the same size. I brought them 31/10.50s and 30/9.50s. They did not care that I wanted a 31/10.5Oon my jigalac, only that they be the same size. I asked them if I returned my 30/9.50s for 31s and come back, can they install them? Yes. Even if they rub? Yes. What if I bring you a corvette with staggerd tires from the factory? We can not mount any tires on a car without matched tires front and rear.
I didnt expect much from walmart, thats what I got.

Fyi you can fit 31/10.50/15 on a mid ninties fleetwood with fenderskirts and wire caps no problem. They dont even rub when doing stunts, n stuff.
