Wal-Mart Complaint - Tire Installation Policy
DELAWARE -- Purchased 2 snow tires for my daughter's car for Christmas. [2005 cobalt front wheel drive] The tires were on back order so they ordered them, called me at 9 am December 24th & said come on up & we will install them right away. When I got there he said they could not install them on the front. The manager said it was policy to install best traction tires on rear so rear would not slide around. I said I was in tire business for 20 years & wanted them installed on front, he said he could not do this. I told him all traction is from front tires & 60-70 % of braking is from front not rear. He said he could install on rear only. I told him this was a crock of s-it & told him to install on rear & I would rotate to front my self.
This is a scam to buy 4 tires instead of 2.
