I don’t like that mine is in the console like I have a charger wire running out of the console to my phone which is mounted next to my infotainment. It’s annoying af

Once in Yamsylvania, we had the potato famine. Which did not upset us because, hey, we eat only yams! Then we realized it is better to starve on potatoes than eat yams. We became so poor we had to raise monkeys for their fur. OK, we raised them for their pleasant smell and many tasty parasites. The kids today, tell them about parasite stew, and they look at you like you're some kind of nutty man, crazed from yam poisoning.

Well here is the conundrum of technology with car manufacturers.  They are always behind the technology because it has to see years of testing.  The issue for you will be car play vs fast charging.  I suggest getting a PD enabled charger that can out 20ws plus from the USBc output.  Get a USBC to lightning cable.

the lightning cable I have no works fine I just don’t like it coming out of the gd console and across the arm rest to my phone mounted on the ac by the infotainment. I like clean lines lol.

Also I’ve had two nails in tires in two weeks that couldn’t be fixed. Discount tire has the best deal as I warranty all tires for $26 each and then if they can’t fix free tire. I don’t know honestly know how people survive with a patch kit only....most all cars that aren’t full suv or truck have no spare. If I didn’t have a spare tire I would have been fucked as my tire both times had a nail on the side wall that couldn’t be repaired. Seems unsafe not to have a spare and that’s exactly why I chose the XC60 over the 40. No spare

Fuck Discount Tire. They wanted to charge me $300 to mount and balance my tires. Why, because I didn't buy the tires from them. Otherwise it's $80. I will never buy from them again.

I bought only one tire from them and now I have free rotations forever, every tire is insured even though I didn’t buy from them and they actually bought the non awd tire I had to use to get back to Denver last week back from me and charged me $50 less for the tire than I had quoted elsewhere and put it on with no labor charge. I mean I get it they weren’t exactly the smartest fucking people to deal with but they took care of me

Mustang did not come with a spare, but they did give me an air compressor mounted where the spare tire is supposed to go that I can plug into the car.  Didn't even come with a jack.

Doesn't sound right - did that include their road hazard? Do you drive a monster truck?

No fucks were wasted in the preceding message.

It's a 37" tire on a 22" wheel. Stock tire on a F250 is practically a 35" on a 20" wheel. Truck just has a level.

This is the second time I've had them quote an outrageous amount. I honestly thought it was just the first location. The other time was putting a 35" on the same truck in Frisco.

why not just buy the tire from them and problem solved? Anyone is gonna charge you more to Mount and balance if not buying from them...just how it goes

I went down the street and had them mounted for $90. I actually called them for pricing but they had them on backorder.

Ended up buying them from a seller on EBay that sourced them from 3 warehouses.
