Discount Tire - Be Careful, Loose Lug Nuts Cold Kill You
Tires - Complaint
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- I purchased 6 new tires for my 1 ton pickup. After driving the truck it started getting a vibration. I Took it back to the discount store I purchased the tires from ( I also purchased their road hazard insurance plan). When they started to take my front tires off they seen that you could take the lug nuts off with your fingers they were so loose. Driving with the lugs loose damaged the rims, lug bolts and nuts. They refused to replace the damaged parts even after Ford said that they not Torqueing the lug nuts properly and leaving them too loose is what damaged them. I am very lucky. God must of been watching over me and my family. If the rim had broke (Which is very possible) we could have been killed but Discount Tire could care less. I am an Elder in my Church and Discount tire treated me like I was trying to rip them off. I just spent over a Thousand Dollars with them for these tires and the road hazard insurance.
All I wanted was for them to replace the damaged to my truck. I guess some day we will all be judged for our actions and I hope god has mercy on the people at Discount Tire.
