A customer of Town Fair Tire, 500 Kings Highway, complained to police Friday that employees there swapped out the factory-installed lug nuts from his 2006 Mercedes Benz C class car, replacing all 20 with old, rusty lug nuts.

The officer who responded inspected the lug nuts and said they did appear to be old, and not original parts. Town Fair officials notified their national sales office, but denied the allegations.
