Angry Tire World=devil



I am merely putting a message to help vent my anger over one of the stupedist incidents i've ever seen!

A very good friend of mine went to Tire World and picked up 2 rear tires for his E36. The price was pretty good and service speed respectable. But today a week and a half later....he was doing a thorough washing b/c of the amazing weather when he noticed that the "idiots" had not replaced the locking bolt on the left rear tire! Upon arriving there this morning we also realized that they had stripped the lock key to mashed potatos making it useless for the other 3 tires! After being told"1 more hour for the owner" we finally got ahold of him, only to be told" Theres nothing we can do".

Now this has pissed me and my friends off beyond belief!

We are going to fight this t'ill its over and everything is fixed!

I am saying it would be nice if u guys could help, if possible. All my friends and I are members of Maxbimmer and could use a lil help. If u need tires, think for a second before choosing one, hopefuly not Tire World Or send an E-mail or a complaint to them....this isn't the first time either, Eurostyle lost a poorly tightened tire on the Hwy from them, a year ago....

Thanx alot for your time,

Dave

can't you shut them down by reviewing the survalence tapes. or get rid of them by getting someone after them. or you could use a dummy car to get them and tell the opp about it.

They have good prices but service is S@#%!!! Last year
it took 2 weeks to get rims that they said will fit, when i got
them they rub on the struts. Then they grinded off the struts, still
rubbing... order spacers... week later still rubs. Order bigger spacers... few days later, still rubs. They sent the rims to a machine shop to grinde off the inner lip....week later no more rubbing! Finaly all 4 rims on the car....week later rear wheel falls OFF because of not torqued bolts....

ANTI TIRE WORLD

If he only charged $15 .. The case isn't big enough for BBB. But still, you have to question this man's business and work ethics. Let this one go, but we will all have to boycott shitty Tire World. I'll put an anti-tire world banner on my website. http://bubbalovesbubba.servemp3.com

Thanks Mat... This place is really bad for business.... I was there when this happened... I told the owner: this is the second set of rims and tires i buy this year and i bring a lot of customers to you... but he said he has to put a line somewhere...even for $15 he rather LOSE CUSTOMERS.... Then i just picked up my new rims and said i'll get tires somewhere else...I know they have the best prices but please people try to avoid this place if you dont want to be treated like S@#T!!!!

There are two owners at Tire World, one is the tall skinny guy who is mostly a prick, and the other is rarely ever there, maybe he should know of all this crap thats happening.

Also the guy at the front desk (bald guy) is one of the nicest people I've ever met.

I know someone who knows the other owner, maybe I'll talk to him.

the bald guy is a good guy. I dealt with him when he was at Tiremag. He took the time to give me full details when I was there a few years back shopping for my rims at the time. I ended up buying off him because I do business with people who want to do business with me. If they act like they are doing me a favor, then screw them!
