2007 Infiniti G35 Sport -- Expensive Tires

October 23, 2007

Recently, as you may have read, our long-term Infiniti G35 Sport experienced a flat. Editor Oldham dutifully swapped it out for the skinny little spare donut and ordered up a new tire. Several days later, I was given the G35 for the weekend so I could go get the new tire, which was due to arrive at our local tire shop Saturday morning.

I went in on Saturday and left the car...

Returning an hour later, I noticed that there was no new tire. I was then informed by the salesman that the company had accidentally sent a run-flat. The correct tire would be available Monday morning. He apologized and since I had some freeway driving to do (the donut's not rated past 50 mph), gave me a temporary full-size tire for the weekend. While that was being worked on, he checked his order, and the company once again was about to send him a run-flat, so again, he had to correct them.

Monday morning, I returned to the shop and they swapped out the replacement for the correct tire. Total bill: $276.83. For ONE tire, labor waived. Ouch!
