Thumbs down Grinding, WTH??

I'm waiting on my 2nd tire install today to finish up. The first time, they drove it out, handed me the keys, and I didn't get 5 ft before I stopped. Serious grinding left front.
How the hell did my wheel bearing sudden get destroyed on the rack! Did they stuff gravel under my brakepads?
No, after a brief interrogation, they realized my wheels are staggered; they put a 9" on front!
