I told him I'd be more than happy to sell him a set of 700c wheels to go with his new tyres...

At least you didn't try to play hero and do it for him, then he would have had argument to have you replace the wheels at your cost. Now if it had been a pretty girl, hmm, maybe a different outcome, but it would still be funny.
