Default what would you do? tires and installers

so i ordered some tires (take a guess) and they ended up shipping out a couple days late and didn't show up at my installer i had them shipped to until today- my appointment was yesterday @1pm...no big deal, i can wait for another day

so i call them yesterday and they tell me i will have to reschedule...ok fine, so my tires show up today and i have to CALL THEM- but the installer can't put them on until next fivin' week

as you can imagine, i'm pissed...my tires are sitting an hour away, held ransom at a shop that can't be bothered with 'fitting me in'


so my options are:

to wait

go pick tires up and find someone that can put them on today (i kinda need my car, i've waited too long already, my fault though) and spend more $$ driving there and back (80 miles + trip to wherever i can find a place that can do it)

ah ****it all

i went and picked them up and had them mounted at my local tire kingdom (only because i know one of the guys there)

it's utter bull**** though what i had to do...i had them shipped to an installer to prevent me loading them in the car and bringing them somewhere...

but then i end up spending $20 on fuel to go get the damn things and wasting 2 entire days now

and to think my father told me to go to discount tire because he thought it would be easier since they would price match online prices and have the tires there in 24 hours and mounted same day...i didn't listen

it's kinda my fault, i didn't think the shop i had them shipped to was going to be so busy...but i get there and both bays are filled, cars outside but silence inside the garage...no one working on anything lol

its all your fault, should have listened to your dad. a week to make time to do simple tire change is a bit long i can go any day to the tire shop and they have them done in 5hrs max. usually around 30min.

LOL. Go to another shop. It takes a good 30 mins to mount and balance some tires and wheels. It could cost 10 - 25 bux a tire.
