My car is meant to have self-sealing tyres but it doesn't

I've recently bought a 2011 SEAT Alhambra from a SEAT dealer. I wasn't aware when I bought the car that the standard tyres fitted are self sealing tyres - therefore no jack, wheel brace, or sealing foam/compressor is supplied.

The dealership, just prior to selling the car, had fitted a pair of "Goodride" tyres on the front which are neither run flats or self sealing.

The dealership are being slow to offer anything at the moment. Could the Goodride tyres be described as not fit for purpose?

Secondly are there other makes of self sealing tyres other than Continental available in the UK?

The dealer has fitted the wrong tyres and must either replace them with self sealing tyres or runflats or must apply self-sealing to the tyres, or must supply and fit a tyre repair kit or a spare wheel and tyre because as it is the car is "not if satisfactory quality." Don't know who else does self-sealing tyres, but the easiest dealer get-out is for the dealer to apply puncturesafe to the tyres he has fitted..
