Minor Dilemma (tyres and repairing)
What is it with service these days?
Recently turning 17, and spending over $6,000 on my car now since the purchase, you would think that people that I am regulars to would have some respect for you.
Im an Adelaide bloke, And I decided to go through a Blackwood tyre dealer for both my $2,800 set of ROH Minalos, and (1 year later) another set of BF goodrich Profiler G 245/45/16 tyres ($520 for the two)
Last night I had the privilege of running over a piece of iron or the like on the road, slicing one of the inside walls (so it leaks). Rang my tyre dealer this morning, told them the story- And they made no attempt to look to see wether they could order the tyre, or get it fixed for me.
So I rang another tyre dealer in adelaide, to get told that the set of tyres that I was sold, (BF goodrich profiler G 245/45/16) Were no longer made, or listed with BF goodrich.. What the? Then whats the set on my rear rims then?
I dont know where to go from here. Every dealer is trying to convince me to run a kumho on the other side, but why? I take pride in the car, and running it like that would just look stupid.
Can someone help here? Is there any specialised places that I can see to get my tyre fixed (anywhere please!).. As it would really get me out of a rather annoying -and expensive situation.
Many Thanks to Everyone,
