Sorry to hear about all the trouble, but this is precisely why I take
all 4 wheels off my car myself and take them to a shop when I need new
tires or balancing. So far in 17 years of motoring, I have never had a
set of tires correctly inflated or wheels correctly torqued by a tire
shop.  Also, on more than one occasion I have had the floor pan bent
from improper jacking/lifting of the vehicle. Not only can you not trust
them, but you can bet they are going to f**k up your car.
