Default Loose wheels

2 days after having both rear tyres replaced, get a knocking at the front?..

Quick check and all 10 front wheel bolts undone?

Hmmm. Wonder ?

Were the nuts retorqued either after 1 hour standing or 50 miles running, wise thing to do with alloys.

Hi Ian. I always keep my beedy eye on them when they are tightening the wheels up. I had a tyre change years ago and never watched what was going on, and around 6/7 miles had the same happen to me, but only one wheel.

Had rear wheels with close to zero torque on the nuts after Halfrauds replaced rear brake pads for MOT at eye-watering cost. Not only that but they managed to apparently use half a pot of brake grease in all the wrong places (sliders were dry!) literally a great big gob of grease hanging off the caliper when I did remove the wheels to further check their shoddy work.

I'd be a bit worried that you had rear tyres changes and found front wheel bolts loose? Makes you wonder if they went to do the fronts as well in error?
