I would contact them, sounds like they contacted you, and let them have the chance to make it right before going in there raising . I have changed A LOT of tires and never scratched up a rim like that on a customers ride. Of course I dont let like that out of my bay with out pointing it out to someone first. But thats me.

Back on a GSXR!!! 08 600

I have some small scratches on my rims and every time I go to 2 wheel toyz for tires they inform me of them beforehand just so they don't get the blame.

After reading ALL of this -
Give up on tire changes -
When the tires are gone, throw out the bike and get a new one.
If you don't totally use up your bike within one set of tires, yer not riding it right anyway.

It might take a few coats with a sharpie.

Going in a shop and bad mouthing them or getting frustrated and blowing up is not going to solve anything. If its really bothering you then simply go in and talk to them about it and try to resolve it. I don't know a shop that will just tell you to "f-off". They have more of a chance of working with you being level headed then hot headed.

This is one reason I change my own. I'm not real about scratches and dings on my bike anyway. But a shop should be able to have the ability to change tires without scratching the rim. I would think it was in the best interest of the shop to do quality work to promote better business and not develop a bad reputation.

Lol. Bro you're overthinking this one. These things do happen, a scratch on your rim is nothing. Now you know to get your tires done by a friend or to do it yourself.

Lesson learned?

If you really care, just put some touch up paint on. Gone in 60 seconds.

And I'm saying nothing in the past or future ever will feel like today

Until I'm parking in an ally just hoping that my is safe.
