I PURCHASED A SET OD 4 NEW TIRES FOR MY DAUGHTER'S CAR AT CHRISTMAS TIME.IN JANUARY SHE HAD THE TIRES MOUNTED, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH HER OLD TIRES EXCEPT THAT THEY WERE GETTING WORN.

WITHIN A WEEK, THE NEW DRIVERS SIDE FRONT TIRE WAS LOW. MY DAUGHTER BROUGHT THE CAR BACK TO SEARS AND THEY FILLED THE TIRE WITH AIR AND SAID IT WAS FINE. AGAIN, WITHIN A WEEK THE DRIVERS SIDE FRONT TIRE WAS LOW. SHE BROUGHT THE CAR BACK TO SEARS.

THEY SAID THEY CLEANED HER RIM AND MOUNTED THE TIRE AGAINA ND FILLED IT WITH AIR. THE TIRE CONTINUED TO GO LOW. MY DAUGHTER KEPT FILLING IT WITH AIR BUT COULDN'T KEEP GOING BACK TO SEARS EVERY WEEK. WHEN HER COLLEGE CLASSES ENDED SHE BROUGHT THE CAR BACK TO SEARS, THE DRIVERS SIDE FRONT TIRE STILL LOW.

SEARS REFUSED TO HONOR THE WARRANTY ON THE TIRE. NOW THE TIRE IS WORN ON THE INSIDE. SEARS SAYS IT IS BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER DIDN'T GET AN ALIGNMENT BUT SHE DID AND SHE HAD TIE RODS REPLACED AND OTHER SUSPENSION WORK DONE. WE BROUGHT THE CAR TO THREE OTHER TIRE STORES AND THEY ALL SAID THE TIRE WORE THE WAY IT DID BECAUSE IT KEEPS GOING LOW AND SHE IS RIDING ON THE EDGES OF THE TIRE INSTEAD OF THE MIDDLE TREAD.

THE OTHER TIRES ARE FINE AND THEY DON'T GO LOW.I BELIEVE THE TIRE IS DEFECTIVE AND SEARS IS TRYING TO GET OUT OF THE WARRANTY BY BLAMING MY DAUGHTER.

Monetary Loss: $158.

Had an Experience with Sears Auto Center?

I had a similar situation.My chrome rim was actually flaking away.

Once the tire guy sanded away the chrome it stopped leaking.

I hope this helps.
