I'm fuming at Discount Tire right now...

Doing this on my iPad from Discount Tire.

My day started ok. I went to the Chevy dealer to get my oil changed. In & out pretty quick. Then I go to the doctor. I had taken off the morning to do these things from work.

I had parked out in an empty area of the parking lot near a nicer BMW a few spots away.

When I get back out to my car, the BMW owner is out there, along with some cops. I am curious, but not concerned. As I get closer to my car, and go around to the passenger side to put my backpack in the front seat, I see that both my right side tires are flat.

Some DOUCHEBAG apparently took a screwdriver and poked the sidewalls of my 2 right tires, and 2 of the BMW's tires.

So, after getting my car transported to my house (to pick up my summer tires I had just taken off), then to discount tire...I am waiting on the insurance agent who's going to be paying for this. Fortunately, a 100 deductible.

Still, I am not really happy that people like this are allowed to breed....

Now that is something to get really P.O.'d about. Sorry to hear about that.

Damn, I'm sorry to hear all that... Fortunately you had other tires to put on it.. and you're scaring me... I'll be up in your neck of the woods in a couple of weeks, first in Portland, then on through Seattle and up into Canada... I'm hoping nothing like that happens... I may have to sleep in the car...

I thought you were mad @ Discount Tire's service They have been great from my experience. However that's really upsetting that somebody did that! But you can take solace in the fact that whoever did that will never get their act together enough to actually afford a nice car like the two he or she vandalized. And if it was a kid, well I hope they get what's coming to them.

Some people have zero (0) respect for other people's property and nice things. Such an unfortunate event.

Nice ride Steve!

Don't worry one day he'll get caught and beaten. My buddy and I caught a dude that was breaking into my friends car at the mall. He already had the door open and was half way into the car. It's amazing what happens when someones head gets caught between the door jam and the door over and over. We just left him unconscious in the mall parking lot. Justice was served .

Why are camaros such idiot magnets ? It seems they get dinged, scraped, crap thrown at them, tires vandalized etc. more often than other cars.

It's not the most expensive car on the road by any means but it seems to attract a lot of hate (envy fueled) ? but again there are many pricier cars out there.

People are straight up retarded. I come unglued if I caught someone in the act of doing something to my Camaro.

Exactly. I thought Discount Tire did something along the lines of shady business.

So I guess he was fuming while he happened to be near Discount Tire, but he wasn't fuming AT Discount Tire.

That's pretty much what happened when we caught the dude breaking into my friends car. He instantly came unglued and gave the dude a serious beating. I'm positive he needed to go to the hospital once he woke up.

He had a huge gash in his head from when my buddy slammed the guys head between the door and door jam.

No, I am AT Discount tire right now, and yes I'm still fuming. I'm waiting for my insurance guy to show up to pay for all of this (except the 100 dollar deductible).

Title was somewhat deliberate

Man, would I be pissed if that happened to me. Luckily that's all they did to your car. Hopefully there are some cameras in the lot to help them figure out who did this!

Good luck with the insurance settlement!

This is exactly why I'm putting together a security system for the Camaro. 4 Cameras, front back and side/side. They run for up to 15 hours on the battery before draining it to a certain voltage and saving the charge (by turning the system off). Hopefully I'll have this system for sale and direct fit in the Camaro and you can catch whoever does anything like this in the future. Considering you were at discount tire they most likely drove in... license plate and face on camera! Yay! Sorry to hear about this crap. In Texas people aren't so ballsy considering our "shoot first" mentality. Chime in on my thread! I'm hoping to get more supporters.

At first glance at your thread title, I too, thought that maybe you were being screwed by Discount Tire for some tires that you had purchased. Sorry to hear about what happened to your tires. I would also be fuming mad. Hopefully, you got this all resolved by now.

That sucks. That *insert word for idiot person here* was just jealous of you and the BMW owner for having nice cars. Some people feel that if THEY can't have nice things then NOBODY can.

I really hope they can maybe use a security camera to track the moron down but I know it's unlikely.

I feel for ya :(

I feel so bad reading posts like these, even though theres nothing I can do to help or prevent situations like these. :(
I just don't understand how people could have so little respect for other peoples property. Yet, the most aggravating thing about it is that if someone was to do this to their car or violate their property, they would have a fit and be in the same shoes you are (except they probably have a POS car, and are jealous)! Again Im sorry to hear about this, but at least its not coming straight from your wallet, and the Insurance company is paying for it.
