    Default Beware of Unique Tire near Bar B Q tonight blue area, Islamabad

    Assalamalaikum everyone,

    I thought I should warn the members here to be vigilant if they have to deal with the shop Unique Tire near Bar B Q tonight blue area, the dealing is highly misleading where charges quoted before the deal change and new costs added for nozzles, balancing and what not (which are not sought at the time of closing the deal and not charged by any other tire dealer in the area) apart from depreciating the price of tires taken off after quoting the final one once the complete new fittings have been performed. Some more friends who visited have complained of other unfair dealing also, so be careful if you visit this place.

    here in saudia, I call one dealer to ask about the price. first he asked me if I want to only purchase or fit in the car. then he told me with fitting price is this. so I think this is better that dealer asked first.

    Bro in Pakistan its a normal practice infact its implied that every dealer quoted you the price with fitting n stuff.... infact now it becomes convention in lahore especially that every time you get your tires replaced you will get free balancing as well as all nozzles replaced, infact dealers r obliged to do the job

    times have changed
    only tyre mounting is free
    they charge for everything else

    on my last set of tyres i checked the guy selling tyres cheaper
    is giving nozzles expensive

    so i got nozzles from the cheaper shop
    tyres from another cheaper shop
    got the free moutning done
    and refused balancing. car does not wobble even after 20,000km's
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    no surprise if that tyre shop is a fraud since almost all dealers and shopkeepers in blue area no matter what they sell are rude,arrogant and deal people by judging them first you see if you allow to many stupid immigrants at a place results can't be good

    According to my Experience, all Dealers resort to such malpractice. At least i have been Taken by Surprise each Time i visited any Tyre Dealer.

    These things if not included in the bill quoted before the fitting are considered free, and even ignoring this part, changing the price of the older tires after the whole process is done and new tires fitted is unacceptable. Either there should be an understanding that we will offer you this price provided xyz, and in case of any depreciation inform that before mounting new ones. The whole intent is to get you in a situation where there is no going back while the bill has escalated!

    I took my Civic 9th generation to Unique guy. He is decent man. Gave me original Honda rims (slightly used) along with new Continental tires in exchange for factory fitted tires (done 13500 km). He balanced the wheels for free. Gave me new metallic color nozzles and caps. Only charged me Rs. 1500 for new wheel nuts (as iron rims have different nuts as compared to alloy rims). For all this I paid him 51500. Not bad I suppose.

    I would advise you get the rims and tires you got checked from some other tire dealer also, since given the height of bad dealing those guys have been doing a totally fair deal is pretty unexpected from them. Get the tires checked for actual date to verify restamping
