CHANGING TIRES, need a good place

I just ordered a set of Michelin PS2's and I need to find a place to install them.

Every place I have ever been to, even to shops I have been referred to, they always damage the rim, basically the tech doesnt really care and is not careful.

Anyone have a reputable shop in the Miami area that can install tires without scratching the wheels? I dont mind driving, but would rather stick to Dade County.

FTW= For the Win

I would try wheels botique on bird rd and 72nd ave....they deal only with custom rims ....they do the work for me and it always comes out perfect

if not autoclass on bird road and 60th ave is good too..
sable chase deals with regular rims so they may be good but i would perfer to go to an actual rim shop

Wont do Wheels Boutique, they screwed me over with my last wheels (18 inch SSR's), and thats one of the places I refer to in my initial post that I was to referred to and they did a horrible job. I guess I just got unlucky, but I wont be going there. Anyone else?

sable chase is very good, but when i got mine installed their balancing machine was acting funny and not balancing correctly. i went to goodroads and they were awesome. But, have heard nothing but good things about Wheels Boutique and Autoclass.

there is also Ultimate Autowerks but, they are always busy as hell, gotta make an appointment.

Oh I know about the alignment factory, KEN is the best. Too bad he doesnt mount and balance tires, or I would of taken it to him.

Ive heard of good roads, but thats a drive for me, kind of want to stay in Dade County. Ill check out Ultimate

Oh by the way, your Q (procede or not procede), DO IT.

Edit: PROcede....already have!
