Thanks
Well, that's too bad. However, they are just wheels, not scratches on your SO's face.

I suggest you ask the shop take the wheel off and touch up the area with a spray can of satin black spray paint or DIY.

I have found that it is best to pick your battles (and this wouldn't be one of them) or life will eat you up from the inside.

Better Business Bureau review, Yelp review, Google review, etc...I'd throw everything at him reviewwise that only takes a quick copy and paste.
They are a garbage company and deserve garbage reviews. Even if it drives away one person, at least they get some punishment.
This is the same kind of person that swings their car door on their beat up crapbox and hits another car door and just drives off....a garbage person.
I had a company do me this way and made sure I let everybody that I could possibly could online know to stay away. I made it good and detailed and
I know I made a few people think twice before dealing with them.

I've been playing with stick on weights for 15 years. We have the pliers, they don't work well and actually ding the wheels worse.

Something like this, ours came with the Hunter machines and have lasted a long time. Some pushing, twisting, hitting, and brake clean and you're done.

Yep, these plastic wedges is what I always used and I've never seen them scratch the finish like what was done on his wheels. It looks like someone used a nail puller or small pry bar to get them off, and since it was steel it scraped right through the paint and gouged the aluminum of the wheels. The plastic wedges like you are using don't do this.


That tire shop was doing a shitty job, straight up.
