Can't believe it - had all 4 tyres changed at my local Central Tyres a week ago. Washed my car at the weekend and I discovered that they've scratched all 4 alloys - I know that it was them as I checked all the wheels the day it went in I buffed them up and got a lot of the marks off but I have two issues: - (i) 2 of the wheels have previously been repaired through Audi (about 9 months ago) and they have badly scratched the paint on these (ii) 2 of the wheels are 'genuine' and even they have scratches on them but not as bad as the refurb's Wenty back to the garage and they are trying to say it is because I have had them refurbished! I said so you're telling me that you can't change tyres on wheels that have had refurbs?!??! (What utter Bo**ocks) They say cos the paint is softer it can't handle the machine that is used to remove/replace the tyre My reply was that they shouldn't scratch wheels - even the originals - to which they said it would 'cut' out!! I called back at Audi this evening who understandably are saying the same as me - I've asked them to get the man that comes and refurbs the wheels to call me and also take a look. Rang the garage back and they are still saying that they weren't baked and only sprayed etc. etc. Either way I went into the garage with 4 near perfect wheels and came out with two that are buggered and two that are marked. Also, bought the tyres and fitting service from Blackcircles so waiting for a reply from them as technically I paid them not Central Tyres. Any thoughts?
