Yup thats how discount does trucks. Put me on the list for them fucking up two of my rims. Looked like the kid ran the gun across both rims on my passenger side.

Took the wheels for my 71 to Discount Tire in Highland, IN. I explained to them that the two wider tires go on the wider rims and the narrower wheels on the front. Get them all the way home and they are wrong. Didn't think to double check them while there. Stupid me for thinking they knew how to determine width from tire size. I bring them back and they scratched 3 of the 4 all in the centers.

Just below the center cap which does hide the scratches/scrapes.



Finding someone who knows how to do it isn't the problem...it's finding someone who treats your shit like his own shit or better for that matter.

The two locations closest to me don't have a very good track record. My mother in laws SUV; they scratched a wheel and broke two sensors. They broke new ones installing them. They repaired a tire on my old truck and it leaked constantly after. Took it to NTB and they did a plug patch. Only bad part was that they dragged a wheel weight along the wheel remounting the tire. They had it refinished.
That's why I want someone who's done well for someone. Sad though Discount used to have good tire busters but like everything else it's gone to shit.
They need Union Skilled Labor.

Man, I guess I have really been lucky...again, and again, and again, and again! lol

Will continue to use the Discount by my house. So I guess my final SINGLE recommendation is to come to the Discount in Carpentersville on Randall. I will personally vouche for them. If they were good enough to mount and balance a $3500 set of CCW's for me, I think your stockers will survive.

Ah yes, the same place that ripped off a bunch of BMW owners and then closed shop abruptly.

Make sure to post pics of truck.

It's been quite some time, but I seem to remember guys getting their cars back in non running incomplete condition. I don't remember all the details but there were some very angry people.

Discount Tire wants 184.00 to change over and balance 4 tires...lol What a fucking joke. I'll be waiting until next week and have it all done as scheduled. I asked the guy if that price was correct and he said oh yea that's the going rate for 22's. I said if you don't want to mount tires bought elsewhere you should probably just say that vs giving people prices that reflect an ass fucking..lol

That's insane. They did my current 20's for under $100. Can't remember exactly what it was, but definitely under $100. They also sourced my 305 Nitto's that were sold out everywhere online at a Discount in Ohio I believe and beat my best price.
