Tireshop Damaged my wheels

I went in to get new 38" Toyos installed on my 20" Driv Blitz wheels to my local shop and one of the guys working on the wheels was a rookie and knocked a ton of rivets off my front 2 wheels. I am pissed off but trying to be cool with the shop and work something out. They are willing 2 buy me 2 new comparable wheels, since my wheels are no longer being made, and I'd have to shell out for the other 2 wheels. They are at wholesale price but I still don't like the idea that I have to pay for 2 wheels when I am not in the market for some. I don't want to come off as a prick and I don't know if it would be too much for me to tell them that they need to replace all 4 but I really don't like the idea of paying money for a mistake they made. What would you guys do?

I can understand their problem with buying 4 wheels. What I would do is have them purchase the 2 replacement wheels and then DEEPLY discount the tires they sold you in order to cover most of the cost of the additional 2 wheels. That way they can keep it straight in the books.

I don't know if that would work man because I already paid for the tires almost 2 weeks ago

I have had so many issues in the past with wheel places. They always get away with everything. I don't know if there is much you can do unless you want a set of new wheels. Or figure out a way to get a discount on new tires when you need them. Get something written up and keep it in a safe place.

i would have them issue you a deep discount on the tires you already bought. they can refund you some of that money. i dont think you should have to pay for any wheels
