Today's Discount Tire experience.
I needed new tires for Kaylee. Student loan check clears and we're good to go.
Walk into nearest DT.
"Hi. I need new tires for my Subaru."
"All Wheel Drive, you'll be needing 4 tires then?"
"Yup." I like it when parts guys actually know something.
Parts guy walked out to my car to write down the miles, etc. Asked me how I liked the tires that were on it. I said I didn't really care for them at all, but they were less than 15k old when I bought the car. The tires are Potenza G009's by the way. He asked if they were noisy yet, which they were getting louder as they wore. I mentioned that they were just not what I needed during the winter slush. He said that was a common issue on the old G009's, but their replacement G019 seemed to do better, but would be a better fit on something sportier than a stock Outback. I agree, but I knew what I wanted before I got there.
Went inside and said I wanted 4 Michelin Primacy MXV4s. Asked if they would match the DTD pricing, which was about $15 cheaper a tire. He could not match, but took $10 a tire off, which was close enough that the hassle of having tires shipped to my apartment building was no longer worth it so save the extra funds.
In and out with 4 new tires, no appointment, in about an hour.
