Wheel Techniques was on the list that I saw on the Tire Rack site for
installers. As reported earlier, ordering the tires there and having them
delivered and installed was almost as simple as driving down to Wheel Works
used to be.
I too got sucked into buying tires from the America's Tire on Brokaw ... but
when they added additional shipping charges and other crap I figured they
got their repayment from all of the flats they fixed for free for me, so
we're even. I think it is great that they fix the flats for free, but it
seems that every time I do any other business with them I leave with a bad
taste in my mouth ...
