WARNING - Sold me defective rim for my imported BMW, then blamed the cheap tyres they offer for free with rims.
Do yourself a favor, buy elsewhere... Their old tyres wear really quick, also my brand new rim had buckle from day one!
1. One of the the front Rims had defect or small buckle, from first drive out of their shop, vibrates at 60 - 80 kphs
2. Returned a few days later, they said it was the cheap Chinese tyres, they provide for free, replaced with Pirelli's, vibration issue continues to this day.
3. Returned again to have rear tyres replaced and complain about front rim not balancing, they said they didn't like my tone and that they "can also b...
Absolutely shocking would never buy off them
Wanted to cancel my order of eBay from them very rude very difficult to deal withWould never recommend the store Their online store says free delivery no free delivery make you pay in very rude won’t get back to you don’t buy from this place
They have no idea about the products they sell and are happy for the customer to take a proportion of the costs if they're in the wrong. Would not recommend. Products are poor quality as well, especially for the high price.
No tyre lrver to fit new lock nuts
I bought new wheels and tyres for my van. I got a flat after 5 months and they didnt tell me the lock nuts were different or provide a tool to get them off. Flat tyre on side of highway in pouring rain at night and no way of changing tyre. Roadside assistance didnt carry it either as they are a rare shape. Awesome...
Lazy, not to mention dangerous.
Tyres failed in 2000km
I suspect they are selling factory seconds i bought kuhmos ku31 and they have huge egg blooning after 2000km now unusable and unroadworthy . As a mechanic I find this disgraceful
The rudest incompetent people ive ever dealt with
Unfortunately purchased a set of wheels off St George wheels . Wheels were posted out arrived . Didnt fit properly.
Was told need spacers and wheels , they were extra . I said the salesman i asked for a set of wheels that FITTED my car , not almost . He then started abusing me over the phone .
Needless to say i dealt with ozzy tyres after that with out any issues
EBay and online store's
Will never use again wouldn't send to my home address on eBay wouldn't send to me from online store because I don't have a land line who does these day worst customers service I've ever had would rather pay full price through Bob Jane as far as I'm concerned
Selling off old products at what cost?
Bought a set of 22” wheels for my Range Rover in 2017 with toyo tyres that we manufactured in 2011. Paid full price for new rubber. The compound had hardened up so much the first time my wife drove in the wet the car lost control. The wheels were poorly balanced, incorrect wheel nuts provided and inconsistent with their finish.
I ended up needing to buy four new tyres and sand blast/repaint the wheels.
Would not buy from them ever again.
Bought tyres from their website. After they charge my card they ring me and tell me they refuse to dispatch my tyres unless I send them a photo of my credit card to verify it's mine. Scam alert!! They already charged my card!! I refused to send photo of my credit card so they refuse to dispatch the tyres that I've already paid for. I said forget it just give me a refund. Now they tell me I have to submit that request in writing for them to consider it!! Can't believe this business. Bad bad bad.
Supple cheap n nasty dodgy unsafe wheels.
Absolute Junk wheels. They sell APEC wheels that hold onto subaru threads by 30% then tell you its legal. (Tried to upload photos- won't work)
Other tyre companies shook there heads at the state of this junk. I bought new wheels & no one wants to give refunds so now stuck $1560 out of pocket with wheels I can't sell without receiving death threats. The wheels endanger lives, I have 3 kids & not risking it. Someone needs a jab on the chin for this trash. Stay away from these guys and APEC wheels. Stretched tyres too, Damaged marks on chrome wheels from the manufacturer. CHEAP N NASTY JUNK.
Warning do not buy from St. George Tyres worst service I have ever had
Each attempt to get a quote was ignored, told they would get back to me at least 10 times, never did then send horribly rude emails with overpriced items obviously just to get rid of me the staff in couldn't be more rude.
Quite possibly, one of the worst customer experience I’ve had buying online.
After finding my correct tyre and wheel package myself I decided to order online as the prices was infact very good.
The order was accepted, received, and I was sent a confirmation email - all good I thought...
Time goes by and no wheels have arrived, so a call to the support team was in order. Turns out the wheels I ordere are not in stock at that price, I can have them but will need to pay more.
I accept an alternative colour, wait 2 weeks, wheels arrive minus ...
Minimum legal requirement
Tried purchase over webpage - asked to phone - told exactly what I required and what conditions (country Roads) originally 18" - nope only 19's available - picked rim - not available staggered fit. Choice of two rims, chose CSL lookalike - No mention of width or offset - received wheels to find tyres stretched and when fitting rim is outside mudguard (illegal) - Contacted St George - No return as they had been fitted - contacted Fair Trading - St George flatly lied and recorded conversation without notification (said they offered to take wheels...back but not tyres) not true. Measured offset of new rims 30mm - recommended 35-45 mm - no wonder rims don't fit properly. Shonky business - I bought from them for only one reason and that was they would supply wheels at the correct offset with the correct width tyres for the rims - SADLY I was wrong, total idiots, with no customer service. Still waiting for a response re-offset - many emails - no response. WARNING - tell all you know to go elsewhere, don't be misled by their glossy pictures or sales rhetoric. Stay away - be warned - get what you ordered not what they think you want. Rims are reproduction and probably not ADR approved.
No Care No Responsibility
Purchased 4 tyres and had them fitted to rims with Tyre Pressure Sensors (TPMS) attached to valves.
After many attempts to Re-train new sensors to ECU to cancel the constant TPMS alarm I took it to Ford Dealer to investigate. Ford found two sensors broken off hence the reason they would not communicate to ECU.
Replacement Sensors cost $65 each plus fitting and Re-training. All up the repair was $400.
St George denied all wrong doing and offered zero compensation or apology.
Supermarket type service i.e NONE! Useless - no help or advice given - Too bureaucratic
If you know exactly what you want in wheels and tyres this is a great place to get a good deal. You arrive. They send you to the office. You tell the girls EXACTLY what you want and wait for the job the be done in quick time. HOWEVER 1. There is no other way! You can't talk to the guys in the workshop or ask them questions or seek any help or advice 2. If changing only 2 tyres they will not put the new tyres on the front unless you specifically tell them to do so even though this is industry best practice and the safest thing to do - so a big Z...ERO for service in this respect. 3. If you have a tyre issue such as an uneven tyre causing car shake/wobble and you don't know which one it is, these guys won't help you. Because you have to tell them exactly which tyre to change. OMG! They wanted to charge me $30 a wheel to remove and check after telling me beforehand they could just run their hands around the tyre to feel for any tyre imperfections. I drove 20km for nothing! OMG what a bunch of morons. Seriously they are totally useless. If you want good tyre service and advice go elsewhere. Like i say this is just a wheel and tyre supermarket where you only get to talk to the checkout girls and that's limited to placing your order. Full stop.
