Post Strange...


I was surfing and came across this picture which appeared in Motor Trend. We all know that it is a common mistake to have the wheels on backwards...but take a look at this combination. Strange...

The front wheels are orientated correctly but the rear wheels are backwards. What was that mechanic thinking?

He wasn't. I have had tire shops install my rims on backwards. When this was pointed out the SVX went back onto the lift, they switched the rims around, took the SVX off the lift, and then gave me the keys. I pointed out that my directional tires were now pointing the wrong way. Back up onto the lift, remove all four tires from all four rims, remount everything correctly, take the car off the lift and give me the keys. I drive one block into a parking lot and pull out my torque wrench to. Those rat bastards.

Now I have found a tire shop that will get my business as long as I am in driving distance.

That really sucks. Not only could they not do it right the first, second or third time. Sometimes I wonder about people. What the heck they are thinking....

Luckily, I've only had one problem with a tire company. They forgot to tighten the bolts on the drivers side rear tire. I got about 500 ft from the shop and the tire fell off. $600 damage the ended up paying for. (please note this was not on a subaru)

I still go there for service since they wouldn't dare screw up again.
