I Have never reported a business before but this place should have their doors LOCKED for good!
I was referred here for comparatively priced good used tires.
I purchased a set of front tires + mounting & balancing for $50.
I waited aside the car as the owner Lanny worked on the Drivers side, as his worker on the other.
In 20 minutes it was done, & thought I had received a good deal.

Note: Less than a year ago I personally replaced my front wheel bearings, my brake pads and had the rotors resurfaced.

Now 100 miles or so after having my tires replaced I got off the freeway to check the VIOLENT SHAKING & unexplained noise coming from the passengers side front wheel.
I came to find that 1 yes ONE OF MY LUGNUTS WAS LEFT HOLDING MY WHEEL ON.
Not only where they missing but 3/5 of my studs where broken.
So I barrowed a lug nut from the other side to hold the wheel on until I was home.

The following business day I brought the car into Lanny.
Explained the situation, and reminded him that luckily my Wife, 8 month old son, and my 11 year old son weren't driving that day.

He agreed to fix the broken STUDS & Replace the lug nuts in a couple of hours.
I returned several times throughout the day, being misinformed each time of when to return again.
Finally I arrived 7 hours later, just before 8:00 P.M. to see the final steps of this SIMPLE SIMPLE FIX!

Believe it or not this is when it was apparently worse to everyone.
NOTE: Lanny the owner and a different worker are finishing up getting the brakes put back onto my front wheel assembly.

He told me the reason for the time delay was do to my car "having STRIPPED CALLIPER BOLTS" as if when they took it apart the bolts came off with no threads.
So now after re-tapping the threads, replacing the 3 broken STUDS, and putting everything back on; I noticed ONLY 4/5 LUGNUTSon either front wheels! (I was told to return soon to pickup the other two, as they where out of stock.

NEXT FUN FACT FROM LANNY! " Also your brakes are shot, not just on this side."
I stated " I just replaced my brakes less than a year ago, what could be wrong?"
Lanny replied with some garbage reasoning and I left.

Before I returned home (less than 2 miles away) I noticed a slight noise coming from the brakes.
THE FOLLOWING DAY! my wife and baby son returned me a car requiring a test drive. Before I turned off my road, I turned around, jacked it up, & took off the wheel.

HOPEFULLY THIS IS THE LAST PROBLEM I EVER FIND RESULTING FROM LANNY's stoned workers.
My BRAKE ROTOR NOW HAS A 1/2" wide score in it from the DUST SHEILD! yes it was bent well enough into the rotor to cause me to order and replace the Rotor.

So all in all the tires are affordable there but how much damage they do is endless.

There is no certified mechanics working here! hope nobody that gets the choice to read this "saves money" by going to see LANNY for a good deal on USED TIRES.
