Where to get tires installed?

So, I've finally decided what tires to get. After going back and forth between all-seasons, winters and the like I've decided to go with Pirelli PZero Nero M+S. I like the 162's too much to take them off and will hopefully get Breyton Visions or the like next year, but it's not guaranteed.

So, where in NOVA can I/should I go to for the tires. Who as experience with a local tire place that you can recommend?

TIA.

yup i agree, currys got top notch machine and reputation!
I ve used them too couple of times, after getting tire from discount tire online, who has best prices. (plus free shipping)
... you can use Craven Tires in the local area to get them install after.
Craven a recommended Tirerack tire installer btw.

Another vote for Curry's. Matt's team will take good care of you. Yeah, they're more expensive then some other shops - but then again, they do damn fine work.

If your in Ashburn, Dont go to the two Goodyear shops... I went to the one in Ashburn Farm, and they knicked up two of my 162's pretty bad... Luckily I had to have them replaced...

I have had good service with Ashburn Service and Tire Center. I will be dropping my car off there today at 330 to have my new tires mounted and balanced...

yeh, I called them, they mentioned your "situation" and how it's a rare occurance. They didn't have any tires for me, but offered to mount any that I order from Tirerack etc.

I ended up ordering tires from Curry's in Chantilly. Their installed price is very very competitive and I liked the overall experience dealing with them; they were very knowledgeable and cordial. Tires go on Thursday!!!
