ROB/ SCAMMERS at Roseville Tires and Wheels!!!!!! Bait and switch, by Junior, the manager.

We called them based on their CL ad, see below. We set up an  appointment, confirmed that the matched, used, 90% tread tires were in stock and that we wanted them. An hour later, we arrived on time for the appointment. Junior says" sorry, we sold them" and they didn't have any matching sets (my vehicle is AWD and needs matching sets). We drove
35 minutes each way to get these!! Classic bait and switch.

Additionally, there are two tire companies that share the same address!!very odd. we arrive and they say they don't advertise on CL. As it turns out, its the "sister" company, 2 feet down the counter-top. I guess it was too far to yell that we were there. no matter, they are in on it too, obviously.

Avoid these scum at all costs!! They are flagging my posts, but I have sent a complaint to CL about it, and they are going to Bar them from posting if they flag this again. [continued below]....
..... Cool.

Heres the ad:

How is this in any way a "bait and switch?"


Bait & Switch:

"The goal of the bait-and-switch is to persuade buyers to purchase the substitute goods as a means of avoiding disappointment over not getting the bait, or as a way to recover sunk costs expended to try to obtain the bait. It suggests that the seller will not show the original product or service advertised but instead will demonstrate a more expensive product or a similar product with a higher margin."

"...sorry, we sold them and they didn't have any matching sets (my vehicle is AWD and needs matching sets)."
In a "bait and switch" they would be trying to sell you a more expensive product(s). Your own posting says they didn't have anything to "switch" you to.

I guess "bait and switch" just make your report look more "official."

Sorry they didn't treat you better, but this "bait and switch" usage on Ripoff Report seldom makes any sense at all.
