I had all my tires replaced on my 05 C230SS last weekend @ America's Tire in Mountain View Ca. Well the lame kids doing the install appeared to be trying to act like a Nascar pit crew, when I was told it was ready to go I looked at the rear end and noticed they had put one of the front tires on the rear (they are staggered fit !! ) well they take it back in and go to work while doing so they dropped one front wheels on it's face !! and took a chunk off a rear wheel !!! ...I yell at them and they scatter away, the co-mgr comes and scolds them too and says he sorry....he says my wheels can be refinished at "wheel tech". So I come home with a stupid 50mph max temp spare...It's been a week and still NO WHEEL !!!!!

If it were to be my wheel, I would have make him buy me a new wheel to replace it. I know it's fixable, but you never know long the wheel is going to last you. Just my opinion.

How your wheel is fixed is up to you. If the refinish isnt right you can probably go for a new one.

Thanks guys for your input and support, they better warranty the finish and it better match the others, I still have the rear wheel scratch to contend with...[:(]
