thats why, your young and they took advantage of you. Perhaps you can get documentation from various tire shops, indicating that 15's are indeed cheaper. Put a suit on and walk in there with a briefcase and tell them you will bring a lawsuite against them for knowingly misleading you and age discrimination

there not 32's. a 265/70 is clearly just a frog fuzz above a 30"

Will they refund? probably not. its been over 30 days. Maybe tell them you have been out of town and just recently gotten back, so you havn't noticed or had time to look at the tire. You just found out they are not the right size. Then maybe. I would expect to pay a pro-rated fee tho for tire wear if they do refund. (they will just take it off what you paid)

----------

in most cases, its no sweat of their backs, they will either sell the tires or return to manufacture as defects.

Thanks for your help guys.
