Thumbs up Just had a great deal with mounting my tires yesterday!

I was at [unauthorized spam] yesterday to get my rims and tires mount and balance. their a doing a special for only $70 cash deal right now!!!!!

i ask them if i want to get a tires dismount and mount another set of tires on, it's the same price too and it's up to 20" rims too if someone has a set of PIMP rims.

here is a link of their website

unauthorized spam

If this shop would like to sponsor Revscene in exchange for advertising services, they should apply through SG. Otherwise, they are not to be advertised on RS. No exceptions.

Sponsorship pays for Revscene's webserver fees. Do your part, report spam.

I go to Fountain Tire on Kingsway just off of Fraser. They charged $8 each to mount and balance snow tires on steelies.

Granted, I don't know if I would go there for bling bling 20" chromies, but for your regular everyday wheels and tires, they're pretty cheap.

Who cares how good or bad it looks... does the guy using it know what he's doing? That's the question you should be asking.

I side with LDS to some extent, you RS folks are taking your "no spamming" rule to a fairly radical level.

Eg. in a car for sale thread, buyer mentions the shop that he frequently brings his car there for work. Low and behold, even THAT is censored out.

Those advertisers must be paying you folks a lot of "protection" money.

RS dai lo.

you finally understand it huh...

Come on, you must be chinese if u used the words dai lo...

You know very well every chinese person will cheat, lie and steal if it means free advertising... fuck, i know i would.

Its not about the pricing, because the pricing is cheap to advertise. its all about "if i can sneak this in" even if it gets flagged as spam, during that time its up, its FREE advertising! then you go around pull, the asian accent, "Oh solly, ai didnt KNOW so solly!" We know the deal, we identify it.

BE A MAN, advertise on RS!

Anyone wants to mention their shop, bay cheen ahh!

We're protecting our sponsors. You should protect them too, because they keep RS good.

Nothing is truly free, you know that, everyone knows that. So who foots the bills for RS? !SG? Us? You? The sponsors? Your mom? (jk) The sponsors do....and in return they reap the benefits $$$. They're happy, you're happy, we're happy.

Next time someone, anyone, whines about how we deal with spam, first go change your diaper, and then ask yourself what would effect you more.... someone spamming (accidentally or not) some shop, and us literally editing out one word.... or RS shutting down, or being forced to pass the bills onto you? That's what it comes down to. Work with us, not against us. We are users here too you know

ps. BAAAY CHEEEEEN AH!!

Wait, you're calling the shit we've seen in the last few months 'good'?

At least the moderation team has changed a lot, but that's still not saying much.
