I went to this Walmart to get four new tires for my car. I was satisfied with the price and the speed of service. So after about 2 months on the new tires I started noticing a small surging when coming to a stop, so I looked the tires over notice the front right tire had a weak spot in the sidewall. I went and had it replaced with a real tire, I noticed it did not fix the problem so I just thought I had a bent axle or something. well yesterday I went to do the brakes and noticed the lug nut holes on the rim were worn in a unnatural shape, and that the lug nuts were no longer tapered causing the tire to shift when applying the brake. So I decided to check all the rims on the car and they all had the same problem. So I had to buy 4 rims for my car costing me $200.00. As I did more research I found because all rims were like this it was a direct result of an idiot over torquing the lug nuts and over time it had worn the rim hole in an unnatural way causing the nuts not to fit into the rim correctly. I guess you really do get what you pay for. Apparently the people in the tire department are unaware that most lug nuts have to be torqued to a certain spec. If I were you I would go somewhere else beings that any guy off the street can get a job at Walmart changing tires. I have also noticed that the service in all the Walmarts is starting to go to POOP.
