I talked with two tire shops today, neither will work on 8" or 12" rims.
So what you're saying is you just talked to two tire shops that will never get any more of your business.
Our Backhoe lost a tube in the rears. Not loaded, one man can move them around.
Biggest tire shop in our county... I stopped and they couldn't be bothered. I know a guy there and if I pulled strings, I could've gotten it done, but I don't want to make someone do work they don't want to do. Day or two to order the tube in, also.
Next town over, different story at Franklin Service & Supply...
They not only welcomed the tire, they unloaded it from the trailer my wife brought it in, then reloaded and tied it down the next day. Apologized they didn't get it done same day too. I was figuring two + days anyways.
$60 tube plus two hours, plus the extra little kindness, plus letting me do all the arrangements over the phone... $100
Wonder who gets my car tires from now on?
