    So i got a tire leak, I take it in he says they'll patch it for free if its fixable. So he takes a look and says sure they can do it, half hour later guy comes out and says the tires no good there's a hole in the sidewall I need a new tire, they're gonna put one on, I say hold on you're not dealing with some schmuck, put the old tire back on, so ate they trying to rip me or not?

    I think they're trying to tell you there's a hole in the sidewall and you need a new tire.

    Go to Costco for tires, they will fix them or replace them no questions asked. Other than where you parked your car.

    You gave them time to add a hole in the sidewall. They suck.

    If there was not a hole in the sidewall when you drove in, yes, they are ripping you off.

    Well, it's pretty much understood that the holes go all the way through.
