New Jeep Wrangler Tires

Posted by LOTGK on December 10, 2007


My Jeep Wrangler tires were finally worn down, (Thanks to my loving son) and it was time to purchase some new ones. The tires on the Jeep were 15 inch wheels, 225’s. A pretty standard all terrain vehicle tire. I had many choices but decided to start at B & R Wholesale tire. After all, I kept seeing the local commercial stating that they’re known by the money you keep. (Beep beep)

Upon entering the showroom, I was greeted by an employee and offered assistance. I told him what I was there for and he went to inspect the Jeep. after confirming the tire size, he went behind the counter, looked through a few catalogs, and pounded on the calculator and came up with a cost of $368.00 that included mounting and balancing. Allrighty then. I said perhaps he could show me the tires first, and lucky I did for he was selling me car tires, not all terrain tires. And they were whitewalls.

I guess I stumped him when I asked for all terrain tires and if he had a size larger, like 235’s instead of 225’s. He fumbled around and showed me several more tires none of which were Jeep worthy. Another five minutes went by with him showing me standard car tires. I really don’t think he knew what he was doing.

Finally, I said no thank you and left B & R Wholesale Tire, where we’re known by the money you keep. (Beep Beep)

I decided to continue on and landed at Pep Boys on Southern and Route 224. The service manager eagerly greeted me and after I told him what I wanted he showed me an impressive inventory of all terrain tires for my Jeep. I asked about a larger tire, and he said sure, he had the 235’s. I have half a dozen brands to select from and decided on the ones pictured above.

He then went behind the counter, tapped on the calculator for a minute and came up with $305.00 that included mounting and balancing. And these tires were a size bigger than B & R’s and 63 dollars cheaper. I agreed on the price and dropped off the keys and returned two hours later and the Jeep had new rubber as promised.

What have we learned? That sometimes advertising, no matter how catchy the jingle may be, must be backed up with quality service, products, and personnel. B & R wholesale tire did not. Pep Boys went above and beyond and has secured my business.
