    Sadly, itís no longer 'news' for Canadian Tire to cause an entire wheel to fall off a moving car.

    Now, to make the papers, Crappy has to make TWO wheels fall off Ö and at the same time, to boot.

    This poor guys case is clear cut, because it occurred pretty much within a few miles, clearly Crappy Tire didn't even torque the wheels back on, heck it almost seems like it was a set up to fail! Even using just the impact gun would get you further then a few miles!!! I am glad there was no injuries. Especially a wheel flying into a public park...Yikes! Alternatively, buy a torque wrench next time its on sale, and ask your dealer what torque setting your vehicle is, and do it yourself in 1 minute after you drive it 100KM.

    Won't ever use CT for our car ever again. Their muffler 'warranty' is false and when we took the car in for an oil change and retrieved it, the car shook and stalled. They wanted to take it in again to 'fix' the issue. We drove away to the nearest mechanic who said the timing was off (what we'd figured). A simple turn of the screw and the car was perfect again. Seemed like CT had tried to set us up for a 'repair'. Ahem.

    Oh-oh! Here's a video!

    I love the caption they give James: "Angry Canadian Tire Customer".

    Are there other kinds???

    (Funny how 8 weeks counts to Crappy as "Immediately"!)

    Anita J.: I had a flat tire fixed there once, and the next day I went back when my tire was really low on air. The guy said just put some air in it. I left went to my mechanic and he looked at it and said it was machined on wrong. He also said that if I would have done what Canadian tire said, the tire could have blown up in my face. He changed out my tire with a new one and I brought the other tire back to Canadian tire and had them reimburse me for the diifference. With the manager saying everyone makes mistakes. Sad, I'll never go back there

    Let's check in, and see how that Winter Tire Spam is workin' for ol' CT:

    Wade Ernst Dealt with you but you didn't help with my damaged rim just a credit on my Ctc rewards

    Wade E.: I wouldn't buy a tire from Canadian Tire in Bridgewater NS as they damaged a rim on my car and wouldn't admit to it and then the Service Manager and the Assistant Manager of the store tag teamed me saying I probably did it myself. That's the service you get at the Bridgewater Store. True Story.

    Wade E.: They made me feel like I was a criminal and they slapped their hands together like they won a match as they walked back in the store.

    Oh-oh! LOL!

    Ginny D.: Sounds like the one in Bedford too. Went in with two sets of 17" tires and left with one set of 17" on my vehicle and a set of 15" in my trunk. Went back and told them they weren't my tires and said they weren't the ones they took off. Tried to tell me I switched my tires for some old bald ones to try and get a new set. Bunch of crooks, took my winter tires I had only used one season and gave me someone's bald tires and called me a liar for their screw up. Never again will I buy anything from there.

    Cory F.: If you buy from there make sure you check the wheel nuts to make sure there tight. Don't expect them to make sure there tight.
