This doesn't involve wire wheels, but when I was a Claims Adjuster working vehicle service contracts, we'd authorize a shop to replace the intake gaskets in one of GM's no-account 3.4 engines and a coupla thousand miles later we'd get a call on the same vehicle with the bearings out of the lower end.
First question we'd ask the shop was, "Did you use those little abrasive wheels to clean the gasket surfaces when you replaced the intake gaskets?" Invariable they had, and couldn't even put two and two together as to why we asked.
All the grit from the abrasive wheel was going straight into the oil pan. Their claim would then be treated as caused by an improper prior repair.
