Ordered Winter Tires from Canadian Tire and they mounted them on rims without permission?
I'm a first time car owner, and I was wondering if I could get some advice. Here's basically the timeline:
- I just bought a set of winter tires from Canadian Tire a few days ago, and they came in yesterday.
- I don't have a set of rims, so o get them installed, I called a few places, including Canadian Tire, to get a quote for rims as well as the installation and I ultimately decided to go to a local garage nearby. I am scheduled to get them mounted and installed tomorrow.
- Approximately an hour ago, I received a call from Canadian Tire asking when I want to come in to get them installed, and I told them that I will only be picking up the winter tires.
- A few minutes ago, the Canadian Tire guy just called me and said the tires are already mounted on to the rims, and that if I want to get it done at Canadian Tire, it will be half off. I told him I wasn't interested.
However, I'm worried that since they mounted the tire onto the rim already, there may be possibility that it will get damaged. I heard that mounting and unmounting tires onto rims will affect their lifespan.
Should I be worried at all?
