Angry Brakes Squeaking After New Tyres Fitted

I had some new non-run flats fitted today by Event Tyres. They did a great job and no damage to the alloys whatsoever....

However, I've noticed tonight the brakes now squeak/squeal when I glide gently to a stop.
This is the first time I've ever had the brakes squeak, but ONLY after the tyres were fitted today. Anyone else had this problem, or does anyone know why they have only just started to squeak?

I'm going to call them tomorrow and they can come out again, but in the meantime, would be interested to understand why they are squeaking/squealing.

Cheers.

Almost certainly your n/s/r brake sensor. Probably got knocked when they were changing your wheel.

Really? Thats interesting, I'll ask them to look at that when they come back.

Why would this make it squeal?

Cheers.

Is it possible that the new tyres are quieter and you just couldn't hear the squeal before? I know the last few sets of worn tyres on my E91 are incredibly noisy.

Ok guys, seems its all sorted.
I rang up Event Tyres yesterday and didnt really want to know and said they dont touch the brakes - which I know they dont. But in 12000 miles the first time the brakes ever sqealed was after the new tyres were fitted....
Anyway, bloke said it is probably some dust blown onto the disc when the compressed air tool.

So yesterday and stamped hard on the brakes a few times and the noise seems to have gone.........

But.......... first time I've ever had a set of tyres changed and had this problem - strange.....


But apart from this problem, all in all Event Tyres did a great job......good people to do it if you dont want your alloys knackered

They checked the wheels (which are mint) before with me and I checked them after. Then you sign to say you are happy they didnt damage them......so I suppose if you ware not happy and dont sign, they should sort it.
