Default Tire install shop

I use to go to Town Fair Tire, cause they do have the best prices on tires + install. I always find nicks and scratches on my rims after they install the tire. Anyone know of a shop in MA near the 128 area that won't scratch up your wheels?

If you have Costco in your area, that would be the one I suggest. Their prices are the best in my area. They treat members well and tires are their specialty. But you still need to mention to the tire manager about not scratching your expensive rims.

Direct Tire works on many German brand cars. Not cheap, but have had some success negotiating competitive prices. I've never had a problem there before. Have also heard good things about Eastside Motoring in Waltham, but have not used them myself.

Try and find a shop that has a "no touch" mounting system, they are out there.

Never knew such a device existed. Sounds like an urban legend.

Thx for the replies.

It's real brother, and the only way to fly! It's the only mounting system my mom lets me use!

The Ranger NextGen™ Series RX3040 tire changer features the latest in touchless wheel-service technology and provides your shop with the most advanced tire changing capabilities on the planet. Put those tire irons and levers away because you don't need them. The RX3040 is a hydraulic powered workhorse designed to work on all wheels without damaging the rim and without the use of clumsy toolbars, bead locks or tire levers.
