|rtguy||What did they do for you?|

|Jeep Rat||Worked out everything with Goodyear directly. They hooked me up. All is good.|

I just picked up my black Procomp 7036's with 35" Duratracs. There is not a mark on any of the 5. Just the difference between a shop that cares and a hack.
Are they going to get scratched and messed up? I'm sure, but at least it will be my fault.

You will even notice when you go to remove a lug nut in the future the chance of slight scratches is imminent...
Buy the touch up= sleep at night

|Rmiller31||Agreed just repaint and roll on. The first time you grind that wheel against a rock and rock rash it you'll forget about those little scrapes. I'm not blowing off what they did I just wouldn't worry about it personally. I think all the dings and scrapes from wheeling are more character then anything so you've got a head start|

I have seen this a lot in my day, I was a Tech at 4WP for a while and people would come in all the time saying that the tire shops down the road scratched there wheels.
Its matter of going to a shop that deals with more after market wheels vs a normal tire shop that does 90% stock car & truck tires. We had tools and attachments on our machine that where plastic so they would not scratch the wheel as much. Sometime the old tires won't come off very easy and small scratches happen its just the way it is.
I agree that scratching all 4 is a little much but I've seen it many times.
I am sure if they do anything they will offer to paint or powder coat them again, I would probably just ask for some cash back and take them out wheeling and get a little rock rash to match...

|TOK||Stuff is gonna happen, but messing up all 4 rims is flat out negligence. I wouldn't let some hack repaint them with rattle can K-Mart paint (unless it was me ), but I'd sure ask for some cash back for my inconvenience.|

|sprkplg08||fix them for you! now get out and put some real scratches on them|

|GT500||You'll enjoy your jeep a lot more when it has a few scratches on it!|

With my previous vehicles and the latest with my Jeep I had zero issues with rims. Hell a local Mom and Pop shop took off my old rims and tires...no problem.
I'm working with Goodyear directly instead of the shop.

I've got to have some cheese here somewhere.
Let them paint the wheels, or get them to do free mount/balance for life or something and paint them yourself. Trust me they won't be pretty long. I understand your upset but be reasonable. Them offering to paint them is something. Perhaps select the paint you want and tell them to wet sand between coats or something

My take: The only reason black wheels became popular is because when you scratch them up on the trail or elsewhere you can rattle can them and boom they look new again. Black is low maintenance, hence the popularity on Jeeps. I wouldn't crucify the shop over those tiny nicks.
I've actually been to shops before that denied me service because of the liability of scratching wheels. It's very hard to put wheels on the mounting machine and take them off without any flaws at all to the wheel. Forcing a tire onto a wheel isn't exactly a delicate procedure.

Is there a method of connecting the tool to the tire as opposed to the wheel?
|07-07-2013 10:25 PM|
That's funny. I had a shop that would not align my jeep.
Says there's no lip for the alignment head to mount and he did not want to scratch my wheels.
Even after saying I don't care just do it. He would not do it

|Airtight||I got my new Pro-Comp 7031's mounted a few weeks ago, black like yours. When I got home I noticed they had scratched one of them. I thought, "bastards", and then went inside and made myself a sandwich.|

If it were me I would get some flat black Rustoleum, spray it into the cap, use a q-tip to dab a bit of the flat black paint onto the rims were they are nicked and then move on with my life.
About once a year I would check the rims for additional nicks and scratches that I had picked up along the way on the road and I would pull that can of paint out and do it again.

|C-Ron||Sucks but I agree that repainting them is fair. I stopped worrying about scratches and dents along time ago and when I did, it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders lol. Now if I can just convince my wife to think the same way....|

A car wash dented the hood on my brand new black truck. It was small but you see it because the truck was black. They offered to fix it or give me lifetime free car washes as long as I Owned the truck. I took the car wash deal. Even though it had a small ding in the hood it was the cleanest vehicle I've ever owned.
The point I'm making is see what they will give you in a needed service. Maybe it might be worth more than the scratches.
Then go spend a couple days in the rocks. The scratches won't be lonely that way.

|J33P4M3||Agreed, I could see one wheel being nicked, but all four? You didn't pay good money for brand-new wheels to have them looked used before they're even mounted. I would contact the tire installers insurance company.|

Yeah accidents happen. Maybe with one tire...but not with four.
|07-04-2013 07:48 PM|
|krisbman||Why isnt repainting them good enough??? The integrity of the wheel isnt compromised. Accidents happen, sounds like the manager is taking responsibility for it also.|
|07-04-2013 03:33 PM|
|Jeep Rat||The rims are Procomps - Flat Black. Might be hard to find a nail polish color. Dang it.|
|07-04-2013 02:54 PM|
|TheDesertOutlaw||I have scratches on my Black Rocks from what else, rocks. The Representative told me that black paint (in the tube, like nail polish) is what you use to repair scratches. One day, I would like to add silver bead locks to mine.|
