What are they specializing in?

Stunting setups I figure due to where you put it...

Stretched Busa's in the stunting section... sounds like an oxymoron to me.

Actually, they specialize in custom work as well as service and soon to be sales (used). They are formerly Performance Powersports on Gulley at Michigan Ave. in Dearborn Heights. They are now located down the street from me (minutes away). I had a good first experience with them when they mounted my tires.

I was under the impression that Drop was an employee of the shop. I reached out to him on pricing for mounting my tires. Fully expecting to pay 35-40 per tire, he quotes me 35 total. I go into the shop and speak with another guy (can't remember his name) behind the counter and informed him of my quote. I find out that Drop is just his promotions guy but he'll stand by the price to get a new customer. We discussed actual pricing but I thought his actions were commendable because he could have charged me actual cost. Furthermore, they actually mounted/balanced the tires while I waited which was cool. Another shop had me drop them off for pick-up later.

Sweet Ryd. I had been in Performence Powersports a few times... but it wasn't close to me so it was only when I thought of it, had a reason, and was in the neighborhood.
