you should have told them to take them off and refund your money right then and there.

I had a buddy that went to walmart. They took off his junk tires, put on new ones. They were the wrong size and rubbed when he turned. (this was for a car) He went back to walmart, told them to take them off and put the correct size on. They did not have the correct size tires. He told them to put his old tires on. They would not becuase they were not safe and would be a liability if wally world had reinstalled them. He called the sheriff. Walmart refunded the money for the tires and he got to keep the tires! Not sure if the same would apply for you, but would have been worth a shot!

Go back. You will most likeyl have to pay a pro-rated fee for tire tread used. Make sure they dont try to screw you on this. Get your money back, drive to discount tire. Buy a set of 15" rims and a set of 33" tires. standard size are much cheaper than metric.
