We were overcharged for the product. Merchant refused to reduced the price of the tire.
On Saturday ******* ** ***** while traveling through the area on military orders, we had to replace a tire that had gone flat the night before. We purchased a Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread All Season tire size ********* from Moore's. We were too far from Discount Tire, the merchant with whom we have a tire warranty. Moore's was the only place that had a matching tire to replace our flat. I realized after returning to our hotel that the price I was charged was significantly higher than the original purchase price ******* When I contacted the merchant to address the issue he claimed he paid more for the tire than we paid at Discount Tire. The list price on Goodyear's own website for that exact tire is only ***** We were charged ***** He refused to give me any money back.

Desired Settlement
I would like the difference in price ***** to be refunded.

Good morning - We feel the price we charged was not an exorbitant one. We purchased six of these tires from Goodyear on our direct account *********** for ******* each. We charged the customer ******* and made a *** gross profit which is standard in our industry. We have no idea what Discount Tire paid for there tires, but they are a huge dealer with much better buying power than we. We bought our tires in the time period when tires were very short and had just taken several price increases. Today we would buy from Goodyear @ ******** so go figure. We can't stay in business and make less than *** GP. Sorry, but we must decline his request.
