I stopped by because I got a flat, They
patched it up for me real quick and even asked about rotating my tires.
They were a group of cool guys that helped a struggling artist in need.
Once I have a bit more money, I will come and get a super full service.
thank you for the help.
I had a nail in my tire..
I took my van to Kaufman Tire today Sat Mar 12 2011 because I ran over a large nail and my tire was leaking air.
The guy at the desk came out looked at my tire and said I needed a new tire.
The hole he said was too big to patch. Huh?? I said.
He told me his cheapest tire was $120.
I could buy a new tire or he could fill my leaking tire with air. He talked about liability etc etc.
I knew my tire was fixable so I asked for air.
I knew there was another tire place further north on Bruce B Downs.
While another employee filled my tire he looked at the nail stuck in my tire.
He told me they couldnt fix it because it was too close to the wall of the tire.
A different reason given for not patching my tire from the first fellow.
IMO I think they just didnt want to be bothered.
Repairing a flat tire was little money.
I think it was unforgivable that he didnt say so.
Instead he told me they couldnt repair my tire and my options were either to buy a tire for $120 or he could fill my leaking tire with air and send me on my merry way.
I went to TirePlus up the street on the left.
No problem. They patched it for me.
I had a thirty minute wait because they were busy, but they took care of me.
No mention of hole being too big or being too close to the wall.
I will never set foot again in Kaufman Tire.
They lost a chance to gain my business.
Courteous and Profesional Personnel.
I purchased 4 new tires along with an alignment and it was indeed a plesure doing business with Lonnie Ledford, sales associate. He was professional and courteous in his approach. In addition, after prcing these tires at several stores, Kauffman had the best out the door price. I highly recommend this particular store for all your service needs. You won't be dissapointed.
