Just need to rant a little I guess... Had Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus ties installed on our 2012 Acura MDX at Discount Tire yesterday. I had researched tires and was down to these and the Continental CrossContact LX20. My plan was to wait until Memorial day and take advantage of Discount Tire's usual holiday rebate as well as an anticipated one from Continental or Pirelli (it appeared both had rebates around Memorial Day in 2016) but my wife got a flat that couldn't be repaired yesterday morning. Oh well, that's life I guess. Anyway, my wife actually took it in as she had the day off. I contacted the store before her arrival and they matched the DTD price. I inspected the tires when I got home last night all four wheels had weight added - 2 had 2 ounces, 1 had 3/4 ounce and the other 1 ounce. I guess that's not a big deal, but I need to take the car back because they scratched up the rims pretty decently removing the old stick-on weights I presume. It looks like they used a wire brush or something. They were the only ones to touch the inside of the rims, the car only has 30k miles and we were replacing the OEM Bridgestone tires. I trust that they'll make it right, I emailed the "store manager" and their customer relations department but have yet to hear anything. Thanks for letting me vent, it's cathartic.
