New Tire Mount And Balance - Complaint
In November 2010 I purchased 4 new 17 inch Pirelli Scorpion tires, all terrain, all season. They were delivered in new condition, I inspected every tire upon arrival from UPS. I brought the tires to Walmart to have thme mounted and balanced. The process took over 2 hours. The Walmart service tech claimed one of the tires was defective or was damaged during transport? I replied if the tire was damaged why did you put it on my vehicle? He said well we got the tire on and it seems ok, its holding air, we think it will be fine. I paid the bill and drove my JEEP for 2 days, on the second day I had a flat tire at 12 am on my way home from work. The next day I examined the tire, their was a small puncture hole in the center of the left rear tire? This is the same tire the service tec stated he had experienced problems with two days prior.
Maybe I ran over over a small nail on the interstate, however I highly doubt it. Bottom line, do not bring your vehicle to WALMART for service, go to a certified repair shop. My mistake costed me $ 175.00. From some of the other responses I am reading, their repairs costed much more. Remember do not bring your vehicle to Walmart for service, they will damage your vehicle and your tires, and then blame you for the damage.
