    Part 2

    It turns out the tire dealer was just trying to sell me a set of tires(or their underpaid new tech's don't know how to use their equipment). Every tire had 2 ounces of weights 90 degrees out of where the balancer was calling for weights. Every wheel only took + or - 1 ounce of weight when balanced correctly. They did all this for me(rebalanced my tires) and did not charge me a dime. They also replaced a wheel stud due to the crap tire dealer over torquing it.

    In my opinion they are also very reasonable as dealers go for what they charge for service...especially if you use their coupons! They have never tried to up sell me on anything either!

    Certainly I will keep this confidential and thanks for letting me know. Being a former mechanic I do keep close tabs on my car so hopefully I won't experience any problems with Kennesaw.

    Best Regards,Darrell

    Hi,Mike

    That's very disappointing for me. Yes, I have been going to Kennesaw. I suppose stuff happens.

    I can tell you what they have done for me. I had a lifetime balance from a tire dealer whom I had been doing business with for 30 years. It changed hands and the new owner is evidently a dirtbag. I took my car in for the rotate and balance and it came out riding like crap. Took it back the next day and the supposedly balanced the tires again. If anything it was only worse. Took it back the 3rd time and their SA tells me my tires are separating.

    Of course they didn't deal in the brand I had so couldn't help with warranty. Well Kennesaw installed the tires before I bought it. So I called and inquired about warranty. I got to the dealership and they were like we aren't tire dealers and hadn't faced that situation before. I could tell if need be they would figure something out. 1st they wanted to have thier mechanics drive and check out my car.
