I went out to one of the local places to price tires today and the guy was a total dork. I told him I wanted a price quote on 31 BFGs. He asked if I had a lift, and I said no. He wouldn't give me a quote because he said they wouldn't fit me jeep.

So.... um.... is everyone I've talked to wrong? They've said I could fit 31's with minimal rubbing that could be fixed with some fender shaving..... I just wanna be sure that I'm pissed for a good reason. :D

I think I went to the wrong place. I'm just wondering what the point was to not quoting me a price. If I want to buy them to put them in my yard, who cares? Just tell me how much they cost.

When I told him I knew they would fit, suddenly they didn't usually stock them so he wasn't able to give me a quote..... there was a big pile of them next to the counter....... DANG IT!!!!

What a jerk! Douchebag works too.
He used the "It's a woman, you can BS your way around your own stupidity and she won't know the difference" strategy. That pisses me off!
Like Amerijeep said, take your business else where and then go show him he's stupid.

I really don't find it humorous. The fact that terror was treated that way is an outrage, in my opinion.

edit: I meant to reply behind terror. I got bumped again. That always happens to me....

I think Lost was teasing, Scout was being a dork, but Lost was teasing :D

I'm still actually pissed. I walked outta there feeling like I'd gotten my hands slapped. Oh.. and Kat, the original thought didn't have chromosomes as what I was missing, but it still started with a C.

seriously tho, some people are just idiots. when I was looking around from tire prices, I called up some local place and told him that I had a 00' wrangler blah blah blah and that i wanted a price quote on 33x12.50-15 tsl radials, he asked me if I had a lift I told him it was lifted 3" and he said that wasnt enought and he couldnt sell me the tires. After "some" arguing, I told him to just tell me with the price, he said $250 a piece, I called him a **** idiot and hung up

I had a 98 altima lowered with 17 inch wheels. I ordered a set of tires from TireRack.com. They took my money then called me the next day and said the tires I ordered did not have a big enough payload rating for my car and they would have to sell me the next size up which was like a 150 dollar price increase. I told them to refund my money then I went to a local shop and got the same tires put on cheaper and had no trouble.
