I purchased 2 from what he said "perfect condition" ps2's 8/32nds or better tread depth from him. Well he forgot to mention one of the tires has 2 patches and the tread depth after measuring is around 6/32nds. Didn't know we had shady people on this forum.

If you paid via paypal, file complaint. That's just absurd! Don't the loose speed rating once patched??

Sorry bro

I was under the impression (maybe wrongly) that a properly plugged tire was as safe as if there was no puncture at all. Maybe I'm wrong. Either way, the seller should have disclosed this.

I unfortunately had this happen to me for a set of 19s I bought here. One tire had a nail in it that was slowly leaking and it wasn't disclosed. The seller wound up refunding me the cost of a new tire. I had it patched and never had an issue, even at track speeds. Hope it works out but understand how pissed you must be.

The patch shouldn't be a big deal but it should be disclosed. Did you get a picture of the measured tread depth?

Hey Austin, I am very sorry for this inconvenience and the hassle i put you through. Even though by speaking with you through Pm's and texts and handling this situation by an agreement we or I came up with, I know that you are very angry and frustrated that I did not disclose the information before you you purchased the tires, which i should've known that there were these defects on the tires before shipping them out (very clumsy of me). You have my number and my email. Let me know if you have anymore questions or concerns.

Should definetly have been disclosed but patches are fine. If it was 2 plugs I would have been pissed.

Hey Guys,

Pakman and I came to an agreement about the situation. He refunded me partial amount for the tires. I'm glad he took care of the situation as best he could. Eventhough they are patched it is on the flat of the tire. My wheel guy said I won't have a problem. Hope everyone has learned something from this. Disclose all the information PLEASE!

Thanks
Austin

Yeah, he's a good guy, I've bought from him before and wouldn't hesitate to again.

We live in a world where NOBODY takes responsibility for their actions. It is refreshing to see someone step up and do what's right. Bravo Pakman.

Same here. I had to double check if he was talking about the same Pakman.
