I took my '05 350z Roadster in to have new tires put on.
Arrived to pick up car to find that the wheels were filthy. Not dirty, FILTHY.
Seeing the condition of the wheels I took a closer look only to find that every wheel on 2 adjacent spokes had scratches in the exact same spot, symmetrical to the curve of the wheel. Further looking showed obvious impact wrench dings at every wheel lug well. When I pointed this out to the service people I was not met w/an apology or explanation but rather ""it's only on two spokes, if it was us it would be on all of them"" and ""that's road rash"" then finally ""bring it back tomorrow and I'll try and buff them out"".
I had just had the car through Nissan's certification inspection process in which, among other things, they checked the alignment. It was perfect. Now the car pulls left so much that I have to keep the wheel cocked to the right to go straight.
The car had no 'shakes' or 'shimmies' at any highway speed now it vibrates considerably @53, 68 and 81mph. They seem to have attempted to ""hide"" this by radically staggered air pressures (FR 36, FL 33, RR 37, RL 41).
By using this company I have ""saved"" my way into an additional 100.00(min.) to have the tires re-balanced and 125.00(min.) to have the alignment fixed.
