    So I went to go and have my new tire installed today on base and they bust a TPMS so they called me and said there was a problem. I went over and they showed me and said to take my truck to firestone and they would pay to fix it. No problem whatever take my tuck there they replace the sensor and finish mounting my tires. Well when they get done they say we can't get the light to go off so you need to take it to toyota. So I go back to base and tell them and then take my truck to toyota. They fix it and said it will be $111. So I call firestone and they said they wouldn't cover it. So I call base and they said well pay for it and we will see what we can do tomorrow when the manager comes in. I'm pissed now because I didn't want this bill and more then likely they will say oh well we payed for the new sensor.:mad:

    Ask visa or my wife. They both constantly remind me how much I've got left to spend.
    After my own problems with the TPSMI've come to the conclusion that it's a gimmick to get money out of the buyer. If you go to aftermarket rims they aren't required and why does one sensor cost about a much as a whole set?

    Format! Format! Page breaks are good!

    In any event: Whoever is responsible for the original damage should be footing the bill here.

    Don't get me wrong I like my new tires. Even though I would get flamed for getting them on here but for the price I couldn't beat the deal. Till all this started happening.

    ^That's about the size of it since it won't live long with those tires on it.
