Venting about Ron Ayers

I ordered my rear tire at the very beginning of march from Ron Ayers. They said it was in stock and going out the next day. A week later, no email saying it's been sent, so I called. "oh its in stock and it'll be going out tomorrow". A week later and nothing. Last week I called and it was, "it's been a mixup, we'll send it out first thing next week, and we'll fax you your invoice so you can take advantage of the Pirelli tire deal". Now I come to find out the promotion JUST ended. Boy was I jipped.

So, am I justified in wanting Ron Ayers to offer me a front tire at a discounted rate?

Boy am I peeved!

That being said, I should point out they they are really nice.

Re: Venting about Pirelli Tire Deal.

I'd be ticked too. The one time I called them, I wasn't impressed w/their service. Maybe I just caught 'em on a bad day??

All you gotta do is "buy" the rear by 3/31/04, you can still send it in if you did buy it a while back... No worries.

No. Pirelli said that the promotion was until 3-31 or "while supplies last"

Exactly, you bought your tire before then... Its when you buy it, not when it gets to them...

I just sent mine off today, so we'll see how it goes... I got my tire from Ayers also, you might wanna edit your title as this is really about your experience with them and not really Pirelli.

Re: Venting about Pirelli Tire Deal.

Hi,

Sorry about the delay in getting your tire. If you give me a call or send me an e-mail I will be hapy to look into the situation and see what happened and if there is something I can do.

Thanks,
Chip Spalding

Re: Venting about Ron Ayers

Thanks Chip,

I just want to let you know that my experience with you guys has been very positive, less that little detail about the tire itself. Vicky, I believe her name is, has been VERY VERY nice and helpful.

Like I said above, I sent it to Pirelli anyway. Perhaps because I DID buy it before the 19th, my order will be valid.

If not, perhaps I'll give you a call.

Thanks for the response.

Eric

Your experience has been very positive except for getting the tire?
Did you get your tire yet or is that next week? And was it in stock the whole time or did it have to be ordered? 4 weeks waiting for a rear tire and I'd get a little impatient as well.

I'm not sure what happened with this particular order as I do not have all the information on this customer, but Pirelli did have a back order issue with the diablos because of the free front tire deal. Demand exceeded supply...

This is true. It took almost 3 weeks to get my rear Diablo from Ron Ayers, but I sent them an e-mail asking when, and they informed me the tire was backordered and should ship on Wednesday. It actually shipped 2 days earlier than expected. Three weeks is a bit long to wait for a tire, but I understand the backorder thing. Perhaps a little better e-mail response to backorders?

Re: Venting about Ron Ayers

Pirelli issued a press release on their site that due to demand, supplies had run out and the promotion was over on 3/16
