Discount Tire & Wheel Spacers = GOOD NEWS

After going back and forth with the district manager here in the DFW area (by the way he was extremely knowledgeable and listened empathetically), I am pleased to inform everyone that Discount Tire as a company is currently writing a policy addressing Wheels Adapters & Wheels Spacers. Even though they've always said they had one, but couldn't generate it for me to see.

Wheel Adapters will now be accepted by there company (as they should be every Porsche 911 has them) and wheel spacers greater than 3mm will more than likely not.

This written policy should explain the difference from a spacer compared to the bolted on adapter (which is still a form of spacing). The company executives just decided this Monday July 2nd 2012, and I now have a note on my file explaining its okay for them to work on my vehicle...I'll be curious to see how long it takes them to get this policy finally posted for the consumer to see at the register.
