checking tires:

Just a suggestion,after all the years of purchasing tires I have never had this happen but would like to caution anyone to check new tires upon purchase that all are matching and the same.I put new michelins on in January and had them rotated once then travelled over 6000 miles pulling my fiver.The dealer rotated the tires when I returned and noticed a passenger tire on my truck.Same size and was supposed to be a 10 ply truck tire(passenger tire probably a 2 ply,36 pound of air rating)Truck tire 80 pound rating,an accident that did not happen as the tire was on the rear of my truck which when hooked up is carrying 6500 pounds of weight and takes all the added presure of the rough ride.I am gratefull that this poor little tire took everything all summer,80 pounds of air and all the mountains we ran.The other thing was I had asked for metal stems and they said it could not be done on the rims I have but gladly put them on when I got back,new manager and more helpfull.Learn each day I guess.jeffp,with an 05 dodge diesel truck and a fiver.Good luck and safe travels.

Always check. Many years ago I had two new rear tires put on my daughters car at a major tire shop chain. They called to say it was done, so I picked it up from the shop, paid for them, and drove home before looking. To my shock, there were no new tires on it! Drove right back to the shop, of course. It seems they had installed the tires on some other car? They had no explanation as to why or how, but I got the two new tires I had paid for, and pronto too!
