Just got my two tires mounted and balanced by Carl. Impressed with everything and really appreciative of the quality of the work he did! Definitely going to divert my tire business his way! And thanks for noting the dried out valve stems; something I wouldn't have noticed myself.

Let's play "how well do you know Carl?"

Who knows why Carl's username is "Agent"?

Push Harder - Drive as close to the limit of your tires as possible.

I had an assumption, but perhaps it was wrong?

Not sure, I have used it since, maybe even before then. My AIM account was TheElusiveAgent back when AIM and Yahoo messenger were awesome. Actually, I remember the reason now!!!!

Okay on the off chance anyone actually guesses it, I'll take $5 off your next service. Send your guesses as a message through Facebook to Carlspeed or myself!

Carl is: "A Gent". Or he once desired to sell insurance and real estate.

I don't do Facebook as I strongly dislike it's founder. "The Creep".

Thanks to Carl for another great job mounting new tires. Now it's off to see the Wizard at Joe's Garage next week for an alignment.

I forgot to guess the "agent" thing so gladly paid Carl full price to flip my race tires.
Be warned. He is full of great ideas on how to help make my Vette insanely fun and fully developed down the road.
Totally sold on his concepts!! See you next season with that in mind?

Carl = Awesome
We needed the rain to put out the fires but it took a week to get some dry days to sort out my tires. I really like talking to Carl. Makes his work go slower 8-) And me go faster :thumbwink: Even his neighbors like him. I don't even talk to my only neighbor since he only wants to borrow my tools :binky:

Carl flipped my RE71's with 71 runs so hopefully I can make it to 100+...phew. Those things wear scary fast to 3/4 way then stabilize.
ALSO he got me a great deal on a set of new wheels. Talk to Carl before you buy. :thumbwink:

Bad news for S2 and STX elsewhere. Carl fitted my RX8 with some new shoes for next season :lust: Not 4 years old this time. Since I made him afraid I'll croak like a frog and stick him with 4 bastard tires he did it on July 4th and made 4 loud popping sounds suitable for the occasion (fitting them on the rim) all the time with me sitting on a bike with the fan blowing in my face pretending I still had my old bike :salute: Hope these tires last as long as that last sentence :lol:
