    This year, Crista and I decided we could cut down our garage from 3 cars to 2. So we planned to put the Miata on the road for the winter for the 1st time.  I bought tires and wheels, all mounted and balanced, from Tire Rack and picked them up since the warehouse is only 10 minutes from our house.  I included TPMS sensors with the purchase.

    In October, I swapped the wheels on the car in my garage, then followed Tire Rack’s instruction on “training” the TPMS sensors.  No luck, the light blinked for a short while then came on solid.  After putting up with it for a while, I visited the Mazda dealer for a solution.  They found that the front left sensor was faulty – would not program correctly.

    I then spoke to Tire Rack’s customer service, got a new sensor from the warehouse, and had a local wheel shop install it.  Drove about 1-2 miles and the light went out … hoorayyy!  Investment so far correcting this was something like $101.  So I emailed Tire Rack and they received my receipt copies.  Just over a week later, I received a credit for the full amount in my account.

    Great customer service and always got a human on the phone when calling.

    Glad that your tire Rack experience was positive…but that does not surprise me at all…those guys are the absolute best at customer service…there is even a ‘miata guy’ that monitors the wheel/tire section on Miata.net…and posts when necessary to let folks know the real scoop

    I always get my tires from Tire Rack, and have them installed by Route 10 Tire in Simsbury even though I live in Waterbury.

    I tried Joe’s Tire in Waterbury at the suggestion of a club member, but their standards have tanked! They left me with under pressurized directional tires mounted on two wheels backwards! I couldn’t believe it, they’re a tire shop, that’s all they do!!

    However, the guy’s at Route 10 Tire are very good and will do alignments to your specifications.
