Watch them like a hawk. I had BJs Warehouse put the Michelin M+S2 E rated tries on my truck. They put 32 PSI in them. When I said I needed 75 PSI the mechanic looked at me as if I was, well, "less than smart".
He gave me the "psssh, the machine only goes to 40" and the eye roll.
I told him I needed at least 60 to mount the tires and I would fill them when I got home. He went to his boss and (he thought I was not looking) he gave his boss the thumb indication my way while he talked.
Apparently his boss told him he had to take the tire off the mounting machine and put whatever air pressure I wanted in them using the manual chuck.
He gave me a dirty look and put the correct pressure in the tire. When he mounted them I watched and when he went to the air wrench, I asked him to use the color coded calibrated torque wrenches he had on the wall to final torque the wheels. He said he was just going to do that, then went and did the final torques.
He might have known he had to torque the wheels, I know he had the tools, but I made sure it was done before I left.
Not sure I will be getting my next truck tire there.
