    I'm a part-time mechanic and a trader. I don't know enough about the way this company is run to say if they are a great investment but I do know they make some of the best tires in the business with great warranties at a very reasonable price. So, on product alone it's a buy. But then, theres the old rule, don't fall in love with any stock!
    Any thoughts?
