    I'm having mixed emotions about my recent dealings with USA6x6. Maybe some of ya'll remember my post about the 37x12.50 Goodyear MT's, well I went ahead and ordered a set and they finally arrived a week and half later. Well shortly after they arrived I went to have them mounted so I could ship my present tires to the buyer who has already sent me a money order for them (which btw I appreciate your understanding through all of this). The guy at the tire shop pulled me in and said he could not mount the tires because they are no good, so I went with him and looked them over and 3 out of the 5 have a gash in the sidewalls and will not hold air. So I call the guy and he told me to try and get them patched with a radial patch.. Come on!!! You sold me bad tires and did not mention that they would need to be patched. So he then proceeds to tell me that he will make things right so I'm thinking good. Well I receive an email from him as an FYI that I can run tubes in the tires. At this point I'm starting to get a little fed up. I think he's gonna send me some new ones but I have a feeling these will be patched as well because in one of his emails he stated that he has places up there that will patch them. I sent him an email stating that he needs to indicate on his website that these are reject tires from the military because I had NO idea when I ordered them, and I would not have ordered them if I had known that. Not to mention the tread depth on 2 of the tires were under 60%.

    I'm really getting kind of ticked, and something better happen fast. Like I said I already have a buyer who sent me a money order and I really really hate dragging him on when I don't have the tires ready to ship to him.

    This is mainly just a rant to warn anyone that might be thinking of buying tires from him. These tires are REJECTS and think twice about buying a set.

    <font color="green"> I'm having some "experiences" with USA6x6 right now too. Told me 2 weeks to get my rims to my door, it's been 3 weeks as of today and he won't reply to my emails about whether they've actually shipped. Last I heard was that they were "supposed to" ship last Thursday, but he will not get back to me with a tracking number. Not passing judgment yet, but we shall see how it turns out... </font color>

    He wouldn't give me a tracking number either, said he didn't keep it. I finally had to call him and get his companies shipping ID # then I called Fed Ex freight and got the tires tracked. I thought maybe it was just me, but almost instantly when he received my money he stopped answering emails.

    I'll look around for his ID # and you can call fedex or fedex freight and find out if he shipped them or not.

    Well he emailed me and said he would replace the tires... still did not say if he was patching them or what, but he wants me to pay for all the shipping. I already spent all the money I have on his crappy tires, I don't have the funds to ship 3 tires to and from him. I'm really getting ticked off here!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    <font color="green"> That's pretty bogus. I'm liking this less and less as time goes on. I should have stuck with my original plan of Rockstompers... Hopefully my wheels will arrive soon and they'll be all good, but I'm having my doubts. Any luck on that Fed-Ex number? </font color>

    <font color="green"> So they treat the two people out of the 1000 that called like this? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif that's ain't smart. I really don't have anything to complain about yet, I mean, the service hasn't been spectacular, but it's no worse than I've come to expect out of any company. I just like when I find a place that goes above and beyond, like ORD for example. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif </font color>
