A: Rental of tires is something I've never heard of. But I suppose that, if they put the tires on your rims and mounted the rims on your truck, they should have made sure the lug nuts were properly torqued.

A: You could also look into whether your insurance would cover any part of the loss, depending on the policy and level of coverage. Good luck
