Man, this is great news.
How the conversation went is a Good indication of what the outcome will, especially if he pointed out damage on the 4th rim

Yeah that's what I'm hopping. He said he will submit his report Monday. I'm sure Firestone will take their time.

Well first thing is firestone is screwing you over i worked at one for a year and any time there was damage done the customers stuff was replaced asap so not sure what b/s they are feeding you but thats not how firestone works. Example lexus came in was lowered tech ripped the bottom spoiler off and scratched the guys paint 2 days later was in body shop getting fixed.

Also post pics up of rims you can probally make out good i road rashed my r/t rim and some sanding and buffing it came right out so if you get the worth value of rims just have them fixed if you cant do it theres guys that can for like 200 a rim you pocket 800.

but ya keep us informed if they follow firestone procedure you wont get money they will buy you new rims

Well just found out they are gonna give me what I paid. Now I have to decide do I try to buff them out? Get them powder coated black? Or lastly sell and start over. They currently have brand new tires and TPMS sensors mounted on them. What do you guys think I should do?

you could try taking them to a wheel shop to have them repaired, but it's up to you, I mean do you want to keep the RT style rims or go with something different?

Well here is what I think I'm going to do since most of the scratchs are in the clear coat I'm going to use some safe cut to clean those up. I have a 1/4 to 1/2 inch scratch in thre of the wheels that are thru the clear, gonna try to clean those up and reclear on my own. They are not really noticable unless your looking for imperfections.
