My friend demanded to go in and see the car on the rack. When he arrived, he realized that they were mounting the staggered wheels/tires incorrectly. Front tires on rear wheels, both rears on one side of the car. He pointed it out and they immediately got to work correcting the problem. Truly stunning.
The sad thing is that one would think you're paying these "professionals" for their expertise. In fact were just paying them for the use of their machine because a blind turtle can understand that's not correct. What morons.
