I have Falken A/T. Would like Mud. But I would eat them up faster doing city driving. So not worth it..If it was a 4x4 I might..But it's not.

yea man it looks like they took you good, i had a Problem with that at walmart a few months back. I am 22 and went in there looking for a set of liberators 30inch and the guy behind the counter told me they dont measure tires like that and that i am an idot ( he really called me an idiot.) and to give him a real tire size to look up and he will get me a price so i told him that he is wrong and i ask to see his manager and went over to the tire racks pulled off the tires i need and by the time i got back to the counter the manager was there and i told the manager the story and showed him the tires that were 30inch tires and the guys says "that must be some special tire size for the ranger i have never seen that size" and there were co-workers that stood up for me and the manager was pissed and gave me free install. so i thought ok everything is cool until i hear my truck reving like hell in the garage and i see the ******* driving my truck into the bay so i storm out and jump the little fence and told the guy to get out of my truck and i put the damn truck on the lift and told him not to touch my truck, so he went to get the manager again to get me kick out of the store and the manger came and ask me to leave the bay and told him to go back up front and stay out of the bay.
i was told a few days later by a friend that works there that he was caught doing oil changes and not replacing the filter and other crap like that and got fired. but after that i will never let any shop touch my truck if i need tires i will buy the tires and take the wheels for them to mount and balance. but man if i where is your shoes i would be the biggest pain in there side as you can (staying legal) and threaten them with a law suit for mis-leading business practices and if they take that as a hallow treat get on Craigslist and see if you can find enough people that have had problems with this place and go to your county commissioner. good luck man keep us up todate.

they really dont measure tires like that...not for under 31 inches...

anythinhg under 31 inches is in metric and then the rest is metric or standard.` for example if i wanted 29 inch tires i would have to ask for 235/75 r 15..

just thought id tell you that


otheer than that..fuck that shit fucking idiot employees!
