@rob28 Thanks for sharing. Wow...that is awesome. Just to think, $1.3M in your hands. I would be sweating...ha ha ha How heavy was it? And ya look great. [/QUOTE]

Not sure of the exact weight but it was around 50-60lbs.
You see it on the table and you know it's going to be heavy but it's not until you try to lift it that you appreciate how heavy it is.
It was amusing to watch people trying to pick it up with one hand and then having to quickly reconsider.
There was no chance of running off with it as the mine is quite remote and there's nowhere to run to...

First time with the Preds. I have worked with the Memphis Grizzlies and The University of Memphis many times. I've worked The Titans some with their Play 60 program.

Exactly what I do. Is that an actual picture from your workplace?? If so, that's a lot of Dell 2950's! You do both routers and servers? I'm just a server guy...haven't gotten into the router world...yet.

No offense... Is it really that smart to go to discount tire to change out tires on your Maserati?

Where would you recommend going? Not the ford dealer where they use an impact wrench to put the lug nuts on and scratch the crap out of your rims.

I don't know of any place better honestly since we are about the only tire retailer who will own up to our mistakes if we actually damage your wheel. No Maserati dealer near my store so...

And like the other guy said dealers don't really care to follow Tire & Rubber Manufacturers Association, or the Wheel and Tire Association Guidelines.

Tires are all we do so it's kinda important that we at least follow some kind of guidelines.

Just gotta take your time with vehicles like that and new guys aren't allowed to even look at that vehicle funny.

I had another Maserati come in a few months ago and he needed a flat repair, turns out his rim was cracked. So I called the nearest dealer to get a price quote for him and it was $2600 for the one rim. My store averages $800k a month I think we can take the hit on that rim if we were to damage of course someone would be in trouble lol.
