Must make an appointment - only flats and new tires are offered as a service (air still available - drive thru) … Not that I'm driving much any way - reasonable measures to keep people out of the store waiting I suppose .
I guess tire rotations just are not considered essential during this specific period ...

its easy enough to do your own rotations, and save the money for more important things

they do rotations for free...

I wouldn't expect you (olas) to know that, with you living WELL outside their service area (USA) and all...but point taken.

Perfect plan for DT. Use the issue of the day to avoid performing time & labor services that don't quickly max the cash register...

They will be happy to sell you an expensive new tire, whether you need it or not, though!

Every other business is getting away with not giving service. Banks are not letting people into their buildings either. There are many businesses that are about half shut down and it's to delay or prevent spreading the Corona virus. Very wise move IMHO.

Not terribly surprising. I got a set rotated at DT last week and at the time thinking about how the current environment might effect their services. Made an appt. just to assure quick turnaround.

Btw, DT repairs repairable area punctures using USTMA protocol FOC to all regardless of purchase. And in 15+ years of purchase and service, I've never been sold a tire that I didn't want. But what the heck, never let the facts get in the way of an irrational rant.

No.

Not really easy enough in many cases.

My daughter is a doctor, she’s extraordinarily busy*, working insane hours. She lives in an apartment and while she has few tools, a jack is not among them.

She’s a surgeon, so any injury to her hands is critical.

Since her tire store offers free rotations, like this store, she gets them done there, on a day off.

*24 hours at the hospital on call. 12-14 hours on a short day. No days off for weeks. Medical professionals are incredibly busy right now. She was so busy, she hasn’t even had time to wash the car for the past year or two, even though that’s “easy enough”. So, I took her to work at 5:45AM and had the car detailed for her. We picked it up at 7:00PM. it was a short day for her.

God bless your daughter and all other medical professionals for their dedication and service.

I guess I was lucky . I just had mine rotated about 2 weeks ago. So I`m good for around another 6 months. Beer2

I've seen this happen before. Software developer mangled his fingers while working in his car. Could not work for 9 months. All of the safety red flags were there. First time doing that job, on a time schedule, no correct tools and by him self. Risk/reward for that job was not taken into account. Pulling a truck drive axle to change the U-joints... ~$300 at midas or so.

If the tires are not wearing abnormally , I never rotate them . If they are , I have a suspension inspection and alignment .

No ones going to have to worry about tire rotations in a couple weeks, the country will be quarantined and we’ll all be doing a lot less driving. California yesterday, Massachusetts next week. Heck, I’m being told I can’t mountain bike on the trails I usually go to (in the [censored] woods).
