New wheels under warranty...

Had an end of warranty check last week & as a result will be getting two new rear wheels due to a small amount of corrosion around the centre cap.

I've got to get it booked in for replacement but am a bit concerned that the dealership might get excited that one of my rear tyres has had two puncture repairs. It's never been run flat as on both occasions when I noticed the screw, I made sure that the tyre was correctly inflated before driving.

Question is, shall I expect them to refuse to put the tyre on a new wheel & therefore end up getting shafted for two rear tyre at dealership prices??

order a tyre online and take it with you. As long as it's got stickers on they might fit it...

Do that but put it in the boot and take the locking wheel nut out before you get there, put it on the passenger seat - they will have no reason to go in the boot then so if they do try it on you can go 'surpwwwwwise!!!!' here's at least one I bought earlier...
