Dealer Shennanigans

I stopped into a local Subaru dealer to check out the WRXs. They had a base car with the STI tire and wheel package added for $2500. These cars come with Dunlop sport max from the factory. Well I checked the tires on this particular car and saw this. I had never heard of these. So I googled and it looks like these are cheap Chinese value shit tires. The wheels retail for $1500 so that means they're charging $1k for these garbage tires? Google shows them going for around $50 a tire. Buyer beware. There are some good ones but they seem to be far and few between. Dealers are f-ING scammers! Some poor schmuck is going to buy this not knowing any different. End rant.

Or call Subaru HQ, this is just wrong. Can't believe even dealers are doing things like that.

I know I can't imagine Subaru would approve this. This is a safety issue first and foremost because they are putting shit tires on a performance car. They are putting these on at the dealership and I think they're keeping the stock wheels that come with the car without disclosing to purchasers. Total d bags

Good eye!

This pisses me off, what bunch of worms. You should run this up the flag pole at Subaru NA or send over to Jalopnik.

They probably will try to sell you those tires under some kinda "performance package" option, when buying the car.

Just to clarify. This is a new car correct, not pre-owned/used?

Jalopnik would be ALLLL over this. The Subaru FB page would be awesome too. You should take more photos and a photo of a window sticker with the option too. You can set their whole house of cards on fire!!!

I don't want to start a flame war with the dealership, my intent is just to bring awareness to garbage like this. I look at everything when I'm buying a car. Take nothing for granted.

If you want to make it known, then post it to their FB page and send it to Jalopnik. Posting something wrong with a Subaru dealer on a BMW forum isn't really going to accomplish anything.

Think broadly. This is JUST AN EXAMPLE of shit dealers pull. The fact that's it's Subaru is irrelevant. If you're not interested in information just move on.

If it makes you feel better I posted to the Subaru boards last night. Good grief.
