If you like getting bad service, your vehicle damaged, nickel and dimed, spoken to like moron or just want to go somewhere to ruin your day, this is the place.
I'am car savvy, I know what I need, and how it should be done properly. I came to West Shore Tires & Auto for a tire I needed plugged. I was in a rush and not ready to get dirty as I was on my way to a meeting.
To start, I tell the man at the front dest what I needed (nail removed & a tire plug) but then he insists on trying to sell me a patch which is about 25$ more. I say no, he gives a dirty look for not buying into it, and move on,
The "mechanic"- It didn't bother me that his english was no better than an infants, He was a mean man that was very agitated for i don't care why. Whatever- Everyone has their bad days. So as he proceeds to take the lugs off my truck, he rolls them across the concrete like he's shooting a game of craps. After all the lugs are out, he begins to literally BASH the back of my rim with a large metal hammer my guess to try and remove the rim btw thats not the proper way of removing a rim I assure you that. So I told him to stop and ask what the hell he's doing!? He replies while looking at me angrily "WHAT??, It no damage!"
That was it! I told him to put the wheel back on, Im going somewhere else. He tells me to go inside and pay, I went inside, gave 10$, and directly told him (the shop owner) I will never come back.
The only plus side is, it only cost me 10$ to find out how bad this shop really is. Im really glad I didn't need anymore work done that would have cost me hundreds. I try to support local businesses, NOT THIS ONE!
