Interesting observation about the Tire Rack and people that work there.I had a tire fail when I was visiting in Indiana. 255/45-19, not your average Walmart tire size. South Bend was 65 miles away so I ordered (4) new tires to be installed at the warehouse.
Found the production line for mounting tires to be interesting. They had people lift the vehicle using (4) common floor jacks. The wheels were placed on a conveyor belt. One guy dismounted tires. Another inspected the rims. Yet another mounted the new tires. Another did nothing but balance tires. Then the vehicle crew put the wheels back on.
If you drive on the roads anywhere near that warehouse in South Bend, and you encounter an aggressive driver around 7:30am, 9 out of 10 times you can follow them to Tire Rack.
Similarly, 9 out of 10 cars that come out of the street that their entrance is on around 5-6pm leaves aggressively and at a high rate of speed.
There are also a lot of burnout marks on the road in front of their warehouse.
Driving enthusiasts, I guess.
