Details: 1998 Volvo V70 w 268K miles
Tire shop replaces both front tires and does alignment.
Drive fine and no sound or vibration for 30 days and 3K miles, then
Yesterday the car starts a sound (which sounds like its from the engine) then increases to a much louder sound then a vibration then (fortunately at a slow speed of 20 mph or so and a mile from home) -> the driver front wheel and tire flies off and the car stops after a lot of sparks and a bit of damage to the front quarter panel and the rotor (which was acting as the tire!) and perhaps other parts of the suspension?
So I have two questions I need help with:
Is the tire shop at fault (even after 30 days/3K miles)? And should they have to fix it at no cost?
Should I repair this or can other things also be wrecked by this event and need to be checked?
The good news is no one was hurt and nothing else was damaged by this exciting event.
Thanks in advance!
