: BEWARE of Tiremag. They screwed up my wheel

If anyone here is considering going to Tiremag in Concord, Ontario. Read this first.

I had my wheels powdercoated last year. They are a little brighter than the factory colour. I needed to get a puncture fixed and I was really really worried about somebody scratching my wheel. After researching here and there I decided to go with Tireworks.

BIG FVCKING MISTAKE. I told them 2 times, PLEASE be careful. My wheels are not a factory colour. If anything happens, all 4 will have to be re-done.

I go to pick up my wheel and here's what I see:

About 1/5th of the "lip" has been shaved. It's hard to see in the pictures because it's so bright but you can see the damage.

Of course they deny it happened there. One guy said it must have happened before I brought it in.

To make matters worse, I bought in 2 other wheels to get serviced. I asked that one of the tires be flipped when re-mounted. Even put a HUGE sticker on the tire saying "PLEASE FLIP INSIDE OUT". I get home and find out they flipped the other one.

So if you want to pay a bunch of monkeys to work on your wheels and mess up your wheels, go to Tiremag. Thankfully I bought the wheels there in the back of my van. If I had brought them there on my car I'm sure they would have forgotten to put lugnuts back on.

That sucks buddy, I use Wheel and Tire Zone on the queensway, never had any problems and I know how easy it is to scratch our rims in that spot.

Look for the place where the tire busters have great looking rigs. They realise how much it means to you.
