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
horse-and-buggy days.

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.
