My gf worked at a tire shop years ago and told me that there were 5 tiers of prices that they charged for tires. It depends on the sales person which price you pay for a tire (just like you explained for parts)... I never knew the same was the same for parts as tires though.

If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand...

I have been a salesman forever. Industrial distribution, not retail.
Anyway, there is always a List price shee as well as different tiers of multipliers.
Some companies won't deviate from those but most don't even use them.

Right now Motive power batteries, which are Electric Forklift batteries have a list price that is about 55 percent higher than what the markup on them is. You can't sell a battery like that at list price. Well maybe you can once.
