"I would guess well over a $1,000 with the wheels and tires," Jacks said.
That is how much money Harvey Jacks said he lost Thursday when his chrome wheels and tires were stolen.
"He told me had been stolen and they couldn't be located anywhere in the shop," Jacks said.
Jacks said the tires on his chrome rims were worn out.
He wanted to switch them with some tires he already had.
So, he dropped them off at York Tires on 34th st.
"The guy who always does the work on our wheels happened to be available right there," Jacks said. "I asked him what it would cost to swap those tires out onto the other rims and he told me twenty dollars."
Jacks said he paid the man but did not ask for a receipt.
He said when he came back an hour later, the old tires were there but his chrome rims were no where to be found.
"I am pretty frustrated to be quite honest ma'am," Jacks said.
And the frustration did not stop there.
Jacks said the situation became worse when he went inside to talk to management.
"He said we don't have a ticket on that that must have been something Adam was doing on the side," Jacks said. "I asked him if Adam was indeed an employee of his. He said yes. So I didn't understand how they wouldn't be liable for wheels that one of their employees was working on."
Jacks called the police but they told him it was a civil matter and there was nothing they could do.
We called the store's management about Jacks claims-but they declined to comment.
"I think a business as big as York Tires would kind of bend over backwards to replace something like that," Jacks said.
