Thumbs down Tire shop scratches my wheels!

I went in today to finally get my tires mounted to my RS wheels and they scratched the crap outta one of them. First they almost mounted the fronts on the rear if I didn't catch it. Then the front driver side was mount wrong with the rotation going backwards. The funny part was the owner was the one that did it. when he went to use that tire mounting machine it also rotated a scratch on the rim. Now he is going to calling a pro to repair the wheel. Or replace the whole thing.

Just had my new rims installed and I was so worried of the same thing. I made sure I told them prior that these are brand new out of tghe box so please be careful and be careful with the stock ones afterwards as I need to keep these in good shape. I checked them out and all was good with them.

Good luck with getting it taken care of.

Obviously incompetent......
I would spread the word to your local Camaro peeps so that doesn't happen to them.

I bet the balance job was marginal as well.....good luck to you.

If you decide to sell your SS rims/tires, please let me know.

Actually it's a side shop here! Camarokid300 since you live here also don't go to "Tire Depot" on Hwy 20 by Wally World. But will admit they gave me a great deal. They even beat all the major tire shop out here, $598 for all 4 included mount and balance! But next time I will just buy tires from them lol! And no more gun stories from me Camarokid300 lol!
