Re: Are the 91Y Rossos OK? ("R" Kelly)
Just as a follow-up, I went to pick up the car on Saturday and told them I wasn't accepting it with the 91Y-rated Rossos. They called a manager and three of them talked to me at the same time and tried to convince me that they were basically the same tires and worked the same way, which --thanks to you guys-- I could rebut.
He then asked --since I was claiming the load rating was less on those tires-- if I knew what weight they were rated for. I said about 1,300+ lbs vs. the 95Y's, rated for 1,500+ lbs. and that the car was almost 3,800 lbs. He they said, "Ok, if you divide 3,800 by four..." and I snickered and said, "You're kidding me with your arithmetic, right? Aren't you supposed to know what you're talking about?"
He then went on to saying how nobody had the 95Y's and that's why they decided to install the 91Y's (for the second time, without notifying me first). I asked if they had called TireRack and he said they had and called them again right in front of me. They really didn't have them in stock.
I said, "TireRack doesn't have them and the local dealership doesn't have them. That doesn't mean NOBODY has them. There's hundreds or Pirelli distributors all over the world, but it is not my job to find them for you. I am paying my premium, which, by the way, just increased $234 because of my claim. That means I want my coverage taken care of and part of my contract wording clearly states that Progressive guarantees pre-accident condition with original equipment, neither of which you are attaining by installing these tires on my car."
To make a much longer story short, he took the car back (for the third time) and will call Pirelli next week and let me know as soon as they make a decision.
Thanks again. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
