I am not so sure about Belle Tire anymore. Last month I took the Jeep in for tire balancing after grinding some wheel weights off playing in the rocks. They made a big deal about asking me to come out to the service bay to show me a significant problem the identified...my tires were too big for the Jeep. The tires they sold me and installed. Last week they wrote me up an estimate to replace my leaking rear axle seals when I was in getting the tires rotated. But the quote referenced pinion seals, and said there was one on each side. Since I had recently wheeled it hard I drove up to Saginaw to Ironman Offroad, Dale just did a complete rebuild on that axle less than a year ago. No leaks or issues at all.
Maybe just my local store?
