Roger that, even though it may seem like spitting in the wind, and granted you have already spent $$$ on tyres, getting a nice compensatory gift card to Wallyworld would be nice!

Why ya gotta remind me?

It already started bad with Walmart screwing me on some tires, their .com allowed me to order and purchase tires and when they shipped and showed at the store for me to have installed, they said "NO" because that size did not come stock on the truck per their book and my door placard. I told them that size was part of the performance package that came on the truck (perf. package gave me wider rims and a beefier tire) and that I had the window sticker to prove it but they said if their book don't say that size then they can't install it for liability reasons...and it took them 50 minutes to tell me that and I was the 2nd person there this morning at 7am.

So I had to go to Tire Kingdom where I have to pay $40 more.

I hope this week only gets better.

Evening Everyone..



I like to stay with GM products for the most part.. BUT I had a 1985 Dodge Ram pickup that definitely proved itself...

That thing was only a standard truck, but it did all it could....

I'm just counting the days until I go on Vacation, one week and one day, and I am booked for that week, Monday- Dentist, Tuesday- Go vote (still don't know who I'm voting for), Wednesday- free, Thursday go shoot my gun and V.F.W. meeting, Friday- Lay around. Sounds like a full week to me. Then I go on Vacation again in December. :D
