6 day wait for a tire?

Sorry I need to vent...

So I got a bolt on my rear tire in an un-repairable spot and need to order a new tire. I had onstar tie to the nearest dealer for a replacement and guess what. No one in the area stocks a pirelli p-zero 275/35r21 even though chevy ships vehicles with this size installed. Is gonna take 6 days to get the tire on. That means I can drive my baby for a freaking week...

Am I the only one that thinks it's ridiculous that no local dealer in the Jacksonville area has this tire?

Thanks for listening! Oh and it's $750 installed for the tire. I wouldn't care about price of I didn't have to wait 6 days!

'tis the season for giving... $750 installed for one $500 tire??? Your dealer must love you a lot and believes receiving is much better than giving.

I have no choice, no one else has it in stock locally and I'm living out of a hotel until my house is built so I can't order online anyway!

You would think that but not when all 4 have less than 3k on them. Honestly, price isn't as much of an issue as waiting 6 days and having to rent a car in the meantime since my other vehicle is still in NY!

Ugh. That is still a stupid Wait time. Two days to ship one in should be max.

That's the problem with the 21" tires. Rare size.

20s are not much better only had to wait 5 hours for them to locate a set and get them to the dealership.
