As for the oil changes, unless that's in writing you are not obligated to have your oil changes done there.

This will be in writing, on the free tires offer. The offer for tires is only good on cars that have been serviced at the dealership. That may mean only oil changes, but on the last Honda I looked at that offered free tires, it meant ALL service. Since I already have a good mechanic that charges much less than most dealerships, that meant I would have been paying an extra $100 for the 30k service, an extra $150 for the timing belt, etc. I would have ended up paying for all those "free" tires.

And on the "tires for life", you had mentioned that they reserve the right to substitute different tires.

I haven't heard of any dealerships substituting retreads for the OEM tires. The point of the offer is to lock you into using them for all your service, not screw you on tires.
