  • Alright so maybe the tire guy thought the question was about literally mounting a tire on a wheel. They get a pass...for now 👀

    • Sorry guys I commented before reading the comments dude was talking about a tire on wheel swap thats not that big a deal on a freightliner or peterbuilt even your 4500 series trucks its not that big a deal i think you call it a double lipped bead but on big rigs tire gets real low. Not flat it just comes of the bead they operate at 100-115 psi Ive seen and I been driving a lazer spot all over a big scrap yard all day when I wasnt in a material handler or my f150 picking up junk cars with a wench trailer

    • What he said about the sealant and pump is very common these days. Less and less cars have spare wheels these days to reduce weight for emissions targets. If you're lucky there may be a space saver wheel but that is becoming rarer.

    • Jobe is right about the tire guys hating the slime in the tires. Its messy and gets every. Also mounting a tire does not require a lot of strength at all to do

    • An increasing number of new cars are coming without a spare tire, opting for the fix a flat gunk or run flats in order to save space and weight. That is probably what the guy meant.

  • I have never negotiated for longer then 30 minutes on a car, I've never paid MSRP/Sticker. I always know about how much money in commission the guy is getting, because I try to be as informed as possible before buying. The way I see it, I take up about 1-3 hours of the sales persons time over a day or a few days, and they are making between hundreds if not thousands of dollars for that short amount of time. I'm never rude, and I'm never aggressive, I am however insistent on whatever I feel is fair. If a sales person wants to put up a "fight", well it's 2021, the internet exists, I already have a car, and I live in an area where I can get to dozens of dealerships within an hour drive, someone will take the easy money.

Why sign up to answer questions on Quora if all you'll tell them is they aren't qualified or worth helping if they have to ask w.e their question is in the first place. Man said the engine will have to be rebuilt as soon as he hears it's knocking. HOW ABOUT CHECK TO SEE IF THERE'S ANY OIL IN THE THING FIRST BUD!

  • it was good advice for how to behave at a dealership if your buying lets say a brand new car. but the question maybe referred to buying a car second hand and wanting to know a bit more about what to look out for in that case? otherwise why not go directly to the manufacturers home page most of them have a configure that they sell cars through now days if your worried about not getting the options you want and it removes the "middleman" which makes it a little cheaper in some instances then buying it from a lot.

  • This may not be quora but I’ll tell you right now if you put gunk in your tire... DONT. I work at a tire shop and that’s the thing that gets you put on the shit list dirty wheels cool pressure wash Em but putting the sticky viscous goop shit in your tires is like putting Mayo in a sock and making someone hand wash it if we want to keep your tire for the used bin we have to go in with a rag and get all the goop we possibly can out of the tire. So if you do this genuinely just buy a spare next time and learn to change a wheel it’ll save us time and you money and your image over time.

  • The guy with the Ph.D, Master's of Science degree and Bachelor's of Science degree, apparently all in physics, understood, "changing a tire," as mounting and balanceing the tire on the wheel. In that sense, he's right; nobody has that kind of equipment just for poops and laughs. Swapping out a spare... How many new cars even have a donut-spare anymore? My new-ish Honda only came with a can of Fix-A-Flat. I tossed that and keep my Triple-A membership paid up. Pays for it self in lock-out services alone... I have one car with a key and one that's keyless, and I make mistakes...
