2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK Owner Comments

I bought a new 2006 C230 on 2/27/2006. I was driving this car on the freeway at night and after 10-15 minutes of driving the tire on driver rear side was shredded. I replaced this tire with the spare tire. After all remaining tires were checked that were good to drive...I drove another 15-20 mins and driver side front tire shredded. At this time I had to call aaa and had the car towed to Mercedes dealership in beverly hills. This dealership diagnosed the problem as something had impacted the wheels of the car and that shredded the tires. I also looked at the wheels myself and I did not see any damage to the wheels where they were pointing to saying there is slight raised or indentation. They told me Mercedes will not cover for the warranty of the tires and wheels. I feel that I did not do anything out of the ordinary while driving this car to cause this damage and I should not be at fault for this and that the Mercedes company should cover this cost and reimburse the cost of wheels and tires. The cost of the parts was $1050 and I paid $1431 in total to the dealership at beverly hills. Also the Mercedes logo on my new wheels that was put on is rusted and does not new while the old wheels that were not replaced have the Mercedes logo that looks new. Also, if there is any extra or special warranty for tires and wheels...I was not made aware of this warranty while purchasing the car.
