BonusSatis told Bored Panda that most tire shops are a rough and tumble environment. “When you are getting yelled at, that means they love you. So when you are not getting yelled at or corrected, that means that no one likes you and does not want to help,” he explained the industry culture.
When it comes to people’s perception of their metal horse’s shoes, BonusSatis said a common misunderstanding is that not all tires are made equal. “People ask about a Walmart tire that is $80 and want to know why the tires we sell [at Costco] are so much more. You get what you pay for in a car tire.”
There can be many differences between cheap and expensive tires, including durability, handling, braking distance, comfort, and noise.”
