an elderly ladie I know bought NEW tires at SEBASTIANS on 256 and 5th in AUSTIN. so... she was preparing this year for the winter and she was told she needed NEW tires, again,(we have the reciept) a few bucks shy of $400.00 and it was only 1 1/2 years later. the car is barely driven and didnt have a 1000 miles on them. SEBASTIAN SOLD THIS lady tires that were 10 year old as new.( they sat somewhere for ten years never been on a car but still considered to be old tires.) and NOW CONSIDERED TO BE DANGEROUS TO DRIVE ON! I had no idea to look to see when the tires were manufactored NOW I KNOW WHEN I BUY TIRES TO LOOK FOR THE YEAR THEY WERE MADE! do you think she was ripped off?I DO!

Report his business to the BBB (Better Business Bureau). He will receive a black mark if he does not correct the problem. At least it will alert smart consumers not to do business with him. I am surprised that a small business in a small town will try to rip off people. Its bad for business long term.
BTW anyone can call themselves "Christian". It is not a title, it is a personal standing with God. In the end times, they will be "weighed and found wanting". God is not mocked. What ever a person sows, he will also reap.

Layton, I did NOT realize the tires were that OLD untill I had to replace them a few days ago for her and they only had 900 miles on them the car never hardly gets driven now I know to look at the date they were made before I buy another set and would advise anyone to do the same no matter who sells them tires to avoid getting ripped off that lady had to pay out 800.00 in 18 months and she is on a very fixed income. no one has that kind of money its like throwing it away ,

If a tire was never used but just stored for 10 years. It will dry rot. This is the reason why you take off the tires off cars you want to store. So it should never have been sold. It is not only ripping you off but putting you in danger

To my understanding kevin did the body work and layton sold the tires and kevin hasnt worked there for over 3 months and is no longer in business with them so you need to get your facts straight and do some research before you start pointing fingers. kevin goes out of his way to help people, i had a flat and he fixed it at no charge. layton i dont know very much about but little i know about kevin is he does what he says and dont leave people hanging on a word.

if you will re read the post it was said that LAYTON sold the tires . what research is there to do? I HAVE THE RECIEPTS WE GOT RIPPED OFF BY LAYTON and if you go back to another response made by me I said I thought KEVIN WAS A GOOD FELLA I know Kevin is a good person I DID NOT SAY anything about KEVIN I am not pointing any fingers at KEVIN but...I am pointing fingers at layton IT WAS 18 MONTHS ago Like I said what new tires are dangerous within 900 miles? I DO have my FACTS STRAIGHT and I dont need to do any research

You CAN do something about it, if a person buys NEW tires at a new tire price,,, the tires CANNOT exceed the manufacturing date of the vehicle they were put on.

Hill's 4x4 does more than just mud tires or tires for jacked up trucks. He can get about anything you want. Stop in & see Big O, He'll treat you right.
