Bad tire install and TPMS Fault

Well last weekend I had 4 Toyo Open country M/Ts put on. 35x12.50x20 with dyna beads in them. A friend was going to do it but his machine will only do up to 33s so I went to a local shop in town he recommended. After hours went by they got it done. They did however leave my hood unlatched which bounced around when I got onto the interstate. You can imagine at the point I wasn't very happy.

Well fast forward to today one week later and I'm driving 200 or so miles to Dallas and I get on the interstate and get a "TPMS fault" message and the tire light on. I check all the pressures and they were good so instead of risking driving hundreds of miles I took it to the Ford dealership in Marshall, TX. They identified the wheel causing the problem and upon breaking the tire down found what they initially suspected. My TPMS had come off the band and was broken and rolling around inside my tire.

They gave me the broken sensor back and installed a new one for a fee. I'm most likely going to take the broken sensor to the manager (who my friend knows) of the tire shop along with the bill I paid and see if they will pay as it was them who messed with them and supposedly "tried to fix one of the bands holding the TPMS on" when they did my tires. They leave my hood open and their work only last 6 days before a problem occurs. Nit wits

At least the Ford dealer was nice enough to pull the code for my keyless entry keypad for free. O well on to the next thing that'll need replacing. Belt and tensioner next week then comes the HP.

Yeah since I was refered their by a mutual friend you think he'd want to make it right especially since my friend called him right away and let him know about the hood thing. I love the dyna beads. I have had them for months in my sportbike and would not like to go back to balancing especially huge tires like that. Suprisingly to me that Ford dealership told me they sell and install them and said they only way they think to truly balance bigger wheels and tires good is to use them.

I'm from Houston and I'm back there every couple of weeks but work in Shreveport. I imagine DRW isn't cheap. I got the offriad beads.
