SO yesterday I took my little car to the carwash..
and I've done this many times with many cars...
but this time I came home and realized that there is a big mark on one of my wheels WTF!!!
:mad: There is a mark and a place where alittle chunk of rubber is missing on my tire.. I mean can people be that careless??!?!?
I had to use a bunch of touch up paint on my wheel and I'm just mad cause I didn't see it tell I got home of course I can't prove now that it was them.. anyway NEVER AGAIN

I guess I wanted to warn everybody else that some carwash places machines seem to not like are wheels SIGHS,
thanks for reading and becareful

Out of curiousity, how did a "touchless" carwash jack up your wheel and tire? Too much PSI at the nozzles?

If so, the car wash is deff at fault and your car wouldn't be the only one jacked up.

I use the touchless kind all the time for quick washes without issue.

no it looks like when they drove the car up on the ramp that there ramp might be to narrow for these wheels
or B. the guy driving the car up the ramp was just careless..:(
so there is a place right on the lip of my wheel where you can see it was metal against metal, and what ever it was also took a little bit of rubber off the tire and as a final reward to me for going there on the same side of my car there was a scratch which I had to touch up with paint Sighs..

thats why I was so mad now I'm just telling others to know to watch out for those wheels some places might damage the wheel
