"Unfortunately it is hard to tell or prove when the damage was done. It could have been done when the tires were previously replaced."

Maybe, but the OP says the dealer is the only one that's ever done any kind of maintenance on the vehicle. Seems pretty obvious to me, but trying to get the dealer to do the right thing could be an issue.

This reminds me of my dilemma about rotating tires. My local stealer highly recommends tire rotation every 5K miles.

To me that is just to much abuse on the lug nuts and bolts. I cringe just thinking bout the "tech" doing the NASCAR boogie on the lug nuts.

If everything is going well I usually go 20K on a rotation. [emoticon]

I hope this doesn't turn into a BOHICA for you. (bend over here it comes again)

Any technician, especially at a tire store, should be using torque sticks to tighten lug nuts. Makes it virtually impossible to over torque.
