    Default Pinch welds getting dented at tire shops...anyone had this? '87 s15 jimmy 4x4

    Hey all:
    I have had the pinch welds (bottom of rocker panels below doors/body) damaged THREE TIMES over the years, last time just last month, by two different tire/service shops, but have never actually seen how it's being damaged. My pics show the damage that's happening, and where.
    One shop told me it happens when they lift the vehicle up by the pinch welds. Anyone experienced this? It's especially nice when the shop lies to your face and claims they didn't damage it, bla bla bla.

    By the way, this has never happened when I take the truck in to the dealer!
