Default Wheel Damaged

I've been going to a car wash (Snake River Rapid Wash) in Idaho Falls for years. When I got my new car I got new wheels and tires for it. I headed to the car wash and the guy that guides you up to the tracks, guided me on top of the rails, and then he told me to turn my wheel resulting in this damage. At first the owner refused that the damage was caused by his operation, but when viewing a security tape, it clearly showed what happened. He then asked me to leave the premises. That wheel replacement was $200.

And how much did you pay for this car wash? There are signs all over the place on my local drive thru wash saying they are not responsible for damage. I went with a buddy and I was like a kid going through it since I haven't been through one in so long. If you care about your ****, wash it yourself.
