Great Service...

Good way to generate business, poking holes in tires in their parking lot.


But yeah, that sucks. Flat tires at a tire store. Who knew. Lot/store cameras?

He never said that it HAPPENED at Discount Tire... if that was the case, he wouldn't have had it transported home to change the tires and then driven to Discount tire. He just happened to be AT discount tire when he made the post.

The Thread title got me too... I could see scratched rims written all over this one.

Totally sucks this happened to you... hopefully you had already used up $100 worth of tread.

Was there a tire shop near by? If so maybe they were hurting for business.

But seriously, sorry to hear about that, jealous punks that's all that is.

My theory is that this type of behavior is caused by the "sense of entitlement" attitudes we see all the time. The same person who drives in the left lane and never pulls over is "entitled" to the left lane because they can use both lanes whenever they want to. They are also "entitled" to cut you off in traffic because after all they managed to get the butt of their car in front of yours and if you hit them in the rear it must be your fault and not theirs. Now since you are driving a nice vehicle and they aren't even though they are "entitled" to drive a nice vehicle, they are just "evening out" the playing field while they wait for their opportunity to be given enough handouts to be able to afford the same or equivalent vehicle. In their opinion you have cheated the system by getting your nice vehicle before they were able to obtain theirs. Once they do get theirs they will scream holy hell for retribution should anyone molest their vehicle in the same manner they did yours.

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.

This car gets attacked because its just plain over-the-top as far as how cool it is.

THIS CAR is hated the same way people hate hollywood celebrities. It's strange. General Motors should ACTUALLY have a meeting about this to figure out a cure.

In other words GM IS LITERALLY going to need to install VANDAL protection devices straight from the factory (such as video cameras on all 4-sides).

They should offer this option. Sensors detect anyone coming near it and then it will tape it and sound an alarm.

I would also offer a spray system that sprays PEPPER SPRAY. Set the nozzles under the car's rocker panels. Aim them upwards.
