Just some advice, make sure you take it to the best body shop of your choice around your area, never let the other party's insurance company boss you around if you think it is unfair.
Yes to taking it to a high end body shop they will do the job to your satisfaction not the insurance company's satisfaction. Stick to your guns and insist. One the tire issue go to a good tire shop and ask them if they would replace only one tire if you came in with a flat to one tire that couldn't be repaired. If they tell you they would have to replace both ask them to put that in writing and give it to the insurance company.
It is your car not the insurance company's you have to be happy with the car forever.
