Unfortunately there is no "cooling off" period for vehicle purchases.You may be entitled to a claim against the dealership if they misrepresented the quality of the vehicle, or made a material misrepresentation regarding the auto when you purchased it (this would be a cause of action for "fraud in the inducement"), but these claims require a specific factual misrepresentation such as "the tires are brand new" (alluding to you will not have to immediately replace them) as opposed to a generic statement such as "its a 'great' truck."Absent some material misrepresentation, you can try making a BBB complaint and negotiating a settlement with them - trying to get them to pay for a portion of the cost of replacement of the tires - but it is going to be difficult to find a case where the dealership is required to do so. Fortunately, the BBB is fast, free to consumers, and can be relatively successful in many cases. You can file a BBB dispute here: bbb.org/consumer-complaints/file-a-complaint/get-started

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
