Default Got Tire Recall Done!

Just got my tire recall done and of course they damaged the wheel trying to put the wheel back on the rim. The damage is small but jeesh is there no where you can go where your wheels won't get damaged. Also really wish Lexus chose a different tire cause these still suck. Also got the brake TSB done the difference is magical I must say, no loud squealing and they still brake pretty good the bite isn't as strong as the other pads but very good for everyday driving.

'Fix It' will probably be sending to a wheel repair company for correction and repainting. I heard some bad results. I probably would just leave it.
