Whilst I’d be ****** off, talk from others on here of ‘they’d have to pay for it’ is totally OTT and unreasonable.

As you said, you didn’t say anything at the time. He charged you nothing, so in essence there is no ‘contract’ for works done.

Chalk it up to experience and make sure you say to people in future ‘I don’t want to sound rude mate but I’m really OCD. Can you guarantee you can do this without marking the car in any way?’. 99% of the population aren’t as anal as is lot on here.

He probably thought, with wheels this dirty he isn't fussy a scratch or two won't make any difference.

I guess your attitude towards this relates to your level of OCD. I myself would not allow this to become my problem, by putting a strategy in place beforehand.
Cleaning your wheels would allow for an inspection to agree the wheel condition before commencement of work.
Lift your game or put up with it.

Obviously I'm substandard so I'll take it on the chin just like your comment.

I recently had tyres fitted at Costco. I spoke to the fitter prior and explained that the wheels were immaculate and if he could be extremely careful when changing the tyres over. He then asked me to accompany him around each wheel inspecting for damage.

There were a few marks on the inside of the barrel from removing old wheel weights but I would rather have that that the face of the wheel scratched.

You can bet that all the "sue the tyre fitter" folk...dont apply the same standards to their own work,that they expect from others.
