Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
I bought a set of Walmart tires online for my car a couple of years ago and scheduled installation at the same store as the in store pickup. After the installation, they started emailing me incessantly about needing to pick them up. Never was able to successfully communicate to Walmart that I was driving around on them. After a week or so, they cancelled my order and refunded.

Score!

I ordered a Yukon duragrip for my old 2010 and the company sent me a GM 7.5 instead of a ford 7.5.. they rushed me out the proper carrier and said they'd include a return label for the wrong one.

They never did, and it now lives in my buddys monte 😋

I ordered a locker a few years ago and cancelled it after months of being on the waiting list. Maybe six months after that it showed up in the mail with no explanation, invoice, etc. Turned it it doesn't fit anyway, so I still need to do something with it.

It's not a lunchbox locker that would fit my 96 is it? Lol

@Angry Possum ,
Since you purchased from their online store, they offer install with lifetime balance for less than your buddy which includes their gratis road hazard warranty.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I ordered a Chinese winch of amazon, USPS lost it for two weeks. So i got a refund. No issues, well 2 days later I got an email saying it was on the move. A day later it showed up at my house. A different USPS guy that normally delivers stuff dropped it off. He didn't like packing it up to my porch also. :ROFLMAO: Amazon never emailed me nothing. So now I have a winch for the bronco II. haha Got to love mess ups! when they work out. :headbang:

Same thing with the set I ordered through Walmart. Got 2 tires in the first drop. 1 tire the next day and the 4th came 3 days later. They were a stock Jeep size so not a special size, 255/75r17 MTs. I think all 3 shipments came from different locations. It was during the Covid time so I figured that had something to do with it. Looks like it didn't though.

Man fingers crossed my Shockworks stubby bumper shows up 1 day haha. Maybe they shipped it before closing doors. They refunded my money so it's highly doubtful haha

You really can't make this shit up. I ordered 4 tires online from Walmart this passed Friday. So,,, One came today, one may come Tonite and the other 2 are coming on Wednesday. Are they F... G kidding me. All from FedEx, so What's up with the Logistics here.

Scratching my head. :unsure::fie::icon_bounceblue:

And when you speak to a customer support rep, there's some real serious accent issues. I can barely understand her. Methinks Phillipines. 😠
I currently work at a Discount Tire while studying to get my associates in automotive technology. I can confirm, Fedex is the absolute worst carrier for tires. They suck. Plus too many stickers, often put ON THE BEADS of the tires so we have to spend 10 minutes scraping off the label.

Yes, in fact, why not just buy from a reputable dealer like Discount Tire in the first place? Why jump through all of those other hoops? I found Discount Tire to be very good and very reasonably priced. And if there are any issues at all, you can just go back. I can't remember what I paid for my Coopers but I got them on sale. T

Everyone has a different opinion, but I am who who believes that spending those few extra dollars are well worth it.

Sometimes you eat the bear, sometimes the bear eats you.
The other 3 came together in one day yesterday. Yippee, now I can get them mounted.

I got the tires mounted today.
$20 Each. The inside beads were so bad on the rims, that they all had to be smoothed out with an electric wire wheel, he charged $10 each with all new valve stems. I looked at the rim beads and they were definitely shot. The owner was honest and the workers were very efficient doing the work.

The tires have a 50psi, so... They put in 50lbs but it rode too hard. So I brought it down to 44. Ride is better.
