A Les Schwab Tire in Riverbank, Calif., pulled the plug on a customer, repossessing tires it had sold to the man in February.
The credit dispute resulted in the store sending a crew to the unidentified man’s home to take back the tires. "They came out in their company truck and started taking tires off," the man told local media.
The Les Schwab store manager said the tires were repossessed because the man was not making payments, and that the store had repossessed tires on two other occasions over the last eight months.
The man and his family pulled together enough cash to get his tires back. There was no information on how much he paid for remounting and rebalancing.
