    You sure you’re qualified to change a light bulb?

    Now what? As a “private mechanic” are you exempt from liability for negligence?

    Are you changing a few tires for friends, or are you in business? They are very different things.
    You're out of your league here. Tires fail, he eats dirt. He didn't inspect the wheels prior to riding, maybe his fault, maybe not. Its up to the law, lawyers, and judge.
    Public or private business, no one in this country exempt from a negligence lawsuit.

    20 years overseeing all liability and injury claims as CFO of a national construction contractor. With every post, you’re digging yourself a deeper hole.

    Drop the shovel.

    PR is only valuable if you still have a business to run.

    Some of the most successful people I know are as indifferent to their fuckups as this guy is. Shit is wild. Fake it till you make it I guess.

    I'll definitely be having someone else do my tires tho. lol

    If the plan is to build an empire at $10 per wheel, shitty work and unapologetically bad customer service, you are off to a great start.

    You should probably network with Landrics Customs, Ray-Ray, and Scott Dana Boyd.

    Tire deal expires in July, no dreams to go into a full time tire changing business. Those guys are big enough dicks that yeah, no. I'm not even touching that one. I'm ok with being called a sketchy rascal but I am definitely not some scum posting on CL and running with the cash.
