New tire + Scratched 20's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Well I got two new tires today so I have four matching tires. I got a great price on my Hankooks at TOWN FAIR TIRE here in CT. I have the 20 inch silver rims.

I even took the center caps off because I knew they would F something up.

Well. I go to pick up my car, inspect it to find a small, mild circular scratch all the way around my 20's. As though the installing machine just left a scratch all around it. Not horrible. But not want I wanted on my 20's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really outrage by this. Im very anal and this kills me.

It doesn't help that last week I went to Infinity for a new cd player due to skipping and I inspect my car to find the clock bezel all bent, and they try to pass that by me..

man I have been reminded of why I TAKE MY CARS NO WHERE>>> NO ONE CARES !!!!

Any ways. Town fair tire, said I can have the rim re sprayed / re finished. OR they can get me a refurbished OEM rim. Which I can inspect before I accept. Kinda like if you get in an accident what the body shop would put on. I called Infinity and they quted me at $1.050 a stock rim.... lol...

Any ways the damage is not that bad, but ill post some pics tomo.

What you think of the refurb. I know its not an original but sound like my best option in this scenario.

I say get the refirb....then on your own get your rims taken care of and sell them. This way you have 'new" rims and you make out with the cash...or sell the refirbs and keep your originals.


and if you decide to sell lemme know

I swear its so hard having anything nice anymore because ppl just dont care! its amazing

Im going to guess they need to send the originals back for refurb core.

I would also expect them to pay for a rental while your current vehicle is out of commission.
Some tire machines have a little lip on the end that pushes the tire into the wheel... my mechanic is also a good friend of mine and I usually hang out and watch while he does that for me. I noticed they have a much harder time with lower profile tires because they seem to be a tighter fit...another reason I may give up my search for 20s and just stick with my 18s

1. refurbished OEM IS original equipment, just not new.
2. Infiniti is spelled with an i
3. Be prepared for you new CD player to also skip at times... (mine does, even though I replaced as well for that reason)

good luck

You would think by now with the ribbing we gave him in the beginning he'd spell it right .

I mean its spelled right on the outside, on the stitching in the seats, the display on the dash, the owners manual, this website, and I think a few other places in the FX :P

Ha ha dan you better start spelling it right

I always wonder how these people find this site. Infinityfx.org doesn't redirect here.
