So I went to collect the tyres from the garage that was holding them for the seller. Very big business with huge workshop and many employees. The contact person there had my details. He brought the tyres out for me. I inspected them, correct make/model and condition exactly as explained to me (no damage or repairs, not even minor and pretty much all of the tread still present) - great! Only one “minor” issue - they were 275/40/R22 Big Cry

I could not get hold of the seller immediately but spoke to them later. Apparently the garage Censored up and *may* have sold/misplaced their tyres and/or provided wrong info Rolling Eyes Seller will find out what happened and let me know.

I have been refunded already but that doesn’t bring back the precious hours I lost. Emptying the boot, removing child seats to fold the rear seats down, laying protection on boot floor and seat backs, 45 min journey to the garage in heavy traffic and then the reverse of all of that after the unsuccessful transaction. What a waste of time and effort! I struggled to fit this in and it was stressful to make sure everything else I still had to do before and after, ran like clockwork.

So the ad is still valid. Still wanted. Current: VW Golf banger until my delayed XC90 arrives

Nightmare Big Cry

From past experience with wheels and tyres always try to go and have a look,
as no matter how many questions you ask there is always something to leg you up Rolling Eyes
have been to a set of 19" with 1 different size tyre, Shocked he had just bought the car from a dealer and moved to 21" he had no idea 1 odd tyre and had been using it for a couple of weeks.
another set of 4 alloys, where 2 of each pattern, they had been same style on each side of the car though Yawn

But look on the bright side Question Question yes it messed you up and Time is Valuable, but at least you did not have them Shipped

Happy Hunting.

They are saying they’re not sure what happened, tilting towards blaming the garage for the confusion. Apparently there were 2 cars involved: theirs with 21” wheels and “the boss’s” car with 22”. The term “company fleet” was thrown about by the garage too. The advert clearly said the size I’m after: you found it, I read it carefully too and it is still in my profile to verify. No one is denying what the ad said. Seller tells me they still have the original invoice for the tyres and it mentions the size they put on the ad. I’ve been offered a copy of that invoice but I frankly told them I have no desire to see it as it doesn’t change a thing for me. Why would I care whether it was the seller or the garage that messed it up? It cost me time that they can’t “refund”. Current: VW Golf banger until my delayed XC90 arrives

Yeah, I knew my money wasn’t at risk as I was paying by PayPal and completing the transaction on eBay. Going there just to have a look or to collect after buying wasn’t going to be any different so felt comfortable with the arrangement of paying without seeing them first.

I agree, not the end of the world. If they had shipped the tyres to me, it would have been a bigger headache to arrange return and juggling all of this with work etc. Current: VW Golf banger until my delayed XC90 arrives

It is maddening that sellers cannot take time to both proof read, and then ensure they are listing the correct item for sale. How can you get the size mixed up with these larger wheels.
The seller should pay for wasted journey time etc. So annoying for you. Censored John

Just being positive about it all ... I got to drive the car alone for a decent amount of time Twisted Evil With someone from my family in it with me most of the time, I have to behave myself Laughing

Don’t think it was a proof-reading issue. They genuinely thought thy were selling 21” tyres IMO. Whether it was the garage’s fault or the seller’s is not clear (or important) to me. Current: VW Golf banger until my delayed XC90 arrives
