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.
That's good to know. I "use to" go there [emoji35]

They were a thought but the local dealer doesn't do their own alignments so I figured they would source out the tires too.

Yea, they should take care of you since you're driving a GM vehicle...lol

He ain't driving to Palatine. Bet me!
Meet me there for a hug.

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

10thSVT_03 What was even better was they tried selling me tires when I said I already have them I just need them installed. Fucking asswipes. Only said it 3 times.

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.

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.


And yours might be good. The one in oak forest that closed, wtf right?, was always really good then poof! Gone! It was always busy too....

10thSVT_03 Dropping the truck off next week and they can do it all. Thanks for the recommendation.
