Yes, apparently <g>.
American ones are generally big chains that make money selling expensive
replacement tires for late-model cars and trucks. The employees are usually
in their twenties and look at a wire wheel like an relic from
Total agreement, except add more employee disdain and lack of care for
anything that slows them up and makes them think. They don't get paid enough
actually give a crap. There are exceptions, of course, but the big chains
(e.g., Sears via NTB) rule the market.
