Jason,

Discount tires in El Monte is the last place in earth i will go to. Also Vic (****) will the the last person I want to deal with. Give me a call and i'll refer you to a tire warehouse.

hrm... well, i called around today, and found a nearby discount tires that gave me a better deal than vic. i'm pretty much set on getting these nitto invo's at that store instead.

but i'm curious to hear why vic @ discount tires in el monte shouldn't be recommended...

everyone knows that u cant use the stock nuts with aftermarket wheels, you did get overcharged on the lug nuts a little bit but it doesnt sound that bad

and no, ive never been to the shop u used. just pointing it out.

Shoreline motoring in Huntington Beach Does quality work. But they are a bit on the pricey side as i mainly see porsches and higher end vehicles there.
