Discount Tire
 
Sort of a bad news/good news story:
My Fiat stays all winter in the back garage. Both front tires went flat. I pumped them up and one went flat quite quickly. They only have a couple thousand miles on them. I recently heard that Discount Tire will fix stuff like that for free so I thought I'd try them. Surprise, my tire was too old and company (Government ?) policy wouldn't allow them to touch it. Being a grumpy old man, even grumpier than usual with some ailments that won't go away, I told the 30-something manager that they had just lost a customer.
The young fellow stayed cool and said he would give me a free tire because he didn't want to lose a customer.
After I cooled off I took both wheels and tires back and got new tires. I apologized to the kid and got the two tires for $35.00 each.

Good on the kid and Discount Tire... "service after the sale" is quickly becoming a thing of the past!

Sometime service during the sale doesn't happen

More government outreach (coupled with a lawsuit-happy society) destroying a service industry and plain old common sense...

Tires
 
I may be wrong, but I don't think there is a federal rule about fixing tires over 6 yrs old. It sounds like a sales trick that the dealers use to get you to buy new tires, or they are afraid to fix anything anymore. Google it.
