I think I was ripped off -- Need a picture
 
I am seeking help. Has anyone recently -- within the last 6 months, purchased Michelin Sport Pilot PS2 for thier BMW? If you have, can you take a picture of the side wall of the tire? Does your tire say Sport Pilot PS2 on the side wall? If it does, can you take a picture and post it? I would really appreciate it.

Here is what happened to me....I would to a big name retailed. I will not say the name but I will tell you the advertise in most Car & Driver & Road & Track. I placed an order for 4 tires -- Michelin Sport Pilot PS2. I paid in advance -- which was required. I was getting the run around for 2 weeks. Finally I showed up at the retailed and said what the @#$% is going on? They told me they had 2 of the tires and the were waiting for the other 2. He did a search and said he could send a transportation company to pick up the other 2 tires and have they delivered the same day. He asked me if I minded if I left my car so he could install them immediately as soon as the tires arrived. He would then deliver my car to my house -- which he did.

I looked at the tires and no where did the tires indicate they were Sport Pilot 2. All they said Sport Pilot G1. I called Michelin. They have no idea what the G1 was. I contacted the retailer. They said they put PS2's on my M3. He has the sticker that came off the tire. I looked all over the tires and no where did I see PS2.

This is why I am asking for help from fellow M3 owners. I went to Michelin's website to find a picture. They have pictures of the tire but not the FULL side profile where you can see all the details of the tire (name, size, psi, etc....) Can someone post a picture so I can reference it?

Thank you,
--jeff

America's Best/Discount Tires?

you need to really double check their work.. along with the usual over-torque lugs.. they will sell you over-sized (because they are in stock) tires by saying that they offer better ride, better traction, etc...
i m just waiting for someone to get hurt by having improper tire size on their oem cars and suing these idiots..
p.s. i do still goto them because i can't afford to go elsewhere.

As soon as I get back to North Carolina I will take a picture of the tire and post. I will let you all know the outcome. In regards to the retail store, I do not think legally I can post the name. Any lawyers out their?

How do you think online reviews work? There is nothing they can do legally. A small local restaurant tried to sue for slander once for a review on Yelp (an online review place) but the judge just laughed at them. If it makes you feel more comfortable to wait until the issue is resolved, that's fine, but I think it would be good to put it out there so other people don't get screwed.

Good luck!

In the future: I have never heard anything bad about Tire Rack. I have ordered there before, and fully plan to again very soon.

+1, legally you can say what you want AS LONG as it's the truth. If you paid for PS2's and that is not what you got than by all means share who the company was so other consumers can avoid the company. Slander would be if you knowing made false claims against with company with no factual proof or basis. I would nail them to the wall!!! Hope you get it all worked out.

WOW .... Pilot Sport PS2 cost a arm and a leg compare to other tires. Can't believe his shop would stoop so low!! Talk about killing business!
