    Ok, so i just lifted my truck 3" and put 33's on it. went to walmart today to mount and balance tires because its easter and everywhere else was closed and i wanted my fucking tires on NOW! :) so while i was waiting i notice this SOB trying to kick my rim off the machine because he is a weak ass. So i cussed him the fuck out like any tacoma owner would do. look at my rims and they scratched my damn paint to hell (rattle canned). anyways. so they put them on. balance, and im on my way. Notice my truck feels like im driving on ball bearings under the tire. PSI is at 50 and its max is 80. so i dropped it to 45. but my worry now is that they might have not balanced them correctly because i chewed their asses out over my rims. what do i do now? because my idea is gonna land me arrested.

    is your steering wheel shaking back and forth? if so i bet it is out of balance so either go back and try to talk to them about it or bit the bullet and spend the 50 bucks somewhere else and let them know what happened

    Just complain to the manager about your bad expirience and tell em the wheels dont feel like they have a proper balance and get your money back. Then when you go get your alignment at your shop of choice, take that refunded money and have your shop of choice balance the tires as well.
