Angry Tire shop not removing stickers...

I bought myself a set of 20" V56 wheels. The store finally got 4 of the wheels today and the fifth is still on order (spare.) What pisses me off here is that they did not remove the stickers off the tires. It's been raining all day so I couldn't use a heat gun to melt the glue.
The ride home was fucken horrible. Almost too easy to hydroplane. The worst thing is now...the front drivers side wheel is pointing to the left! Yes, I looked at the passenger side tire and it's even with the car.





I will cut the stickers up using a letter opener following the treads. Is this negligence enough to have them pay for the repair bill?

How could stickers on the tires affect your alignment? I think it would be impossible for them to have any effect at all, let alone one that you can see. People hit potholes and curbs all the time without disturbing it enough to where it's obvious by looking at the wheels, how coudl the stickers do it? I think ou have something else going on besides the stickers.

It's been raining all day. I could imagine that's what made the ride shitty at first. The car's going to a garage next week because of the butterfly valve sticking. I'll also have them check that out.

They should have taken them off. They are not hard to remove. I use to work at a Tire Kingdom, and I removed a ton of them just peal a corner and and pull them off.

Been in the business 35 years and I have NEVER heard this complaint before. You remove the stickers by

a. Driving the car a few miles
b. Pulling them off ( takes about 10 seconds per tire)

MELT the Glue?!?!?!? What are you smoking? Just grab the corner of the sticker and peel OR drive the damn car.

Has nothing to do with the tires or wheels or stickers.

You have not described even one tiny bit of negligence. Only extreme ignorance on your part.

Oh and by the way, WTF is a butterfly valve. This 30 years ASE master tech really wants to know!
