I purchased a new set of tires for my 08 Tacoma Doublecab yesterday. When they drove it out of the garage, I noticed that there was grease and dirt all lover the upholstry but, luckily, I had a seat cover and the rest of the grime came out easily.
This morning, I decided to give my Tacoma a nice bath to commemorate the new tires. As I dried my Tacoma, I noticed that all four rims had alot of dings and scratches near the lug nuts. Now that I noticed it, they are VERY noticable even from a distance.
I'll be the first to admit that I baby my Tacoma, but I don't think it is unreasonable to expect a national tire chain to NOT tear up my rims in the process of getting new tires.
Would it be chickens**t of me to ask the manager to replace the rims with the exact, factory OEM Toyota rims? Afterall, the mechanic did get grease all over the inside of my truck but I was willing to overlook that since it came out easily. The dings all over my rims, on the other hand, is a different story.
For clarification purposes, the rims on my truck are mint except for the newly dinged and scratched areas on EVERY lugnut hole. There are now scratches anywhere else - no dings, no curbchecks, and etc. - NADA.
