YES! X2 -- In fact, don't trust tire dealers either!
Swapped out my China bombs for Goodyear Marathon, LR D tires. When I went back to the tire shop to pick up our 5er the tires looked suspiciously low. I checked the tires and they had 40 PSI (spec is 60!) Snagged the tech and he said he thought it was supposed to be 40 (read the sidewall bozo!)
So I got suspicious and asked him if he had spun balanced them to 65MPH as I had requested on the work order. He got a dazed & confused look on his face so I went direct to the manager and talked to him. He apologized and got another tech to pull a tire. NOPE no balancing! So they redid all 4 tires while I *watched*
For some odd reason I did not see the original tech around the tire shop when I left with my correctly inflated and balanced tires
