100% not normal in any way. With a skilled and conscientious fitter - who takes some pride in their work.......and uses protection on the rims.....this is 100% not necessary.

Agree with this, the view will be that the wheel is not damaged beyond repair so a refurb will be good enough.

I don't like your chances of them agreeing to a new wheel. Even when tyre places have damaged the face of a wheel normally a refurbishment is as good as people get.
