Got some new wheels and need tires installed. Tires i have shouldnt be a huge stretch but will not be a normal fit as well. Who/ Where will do this?

also if a place is suggested are they guaranteed not to damage my wheel. I have brand new wheels and im worried about the face of the wheel being damaged by the installer

Thanks for any input or suggestions

Air hose and ether should do it..... But I can do it and be more EPA friendly.

Honestly if you don't know someone from discount tire, do not go there, I have seen many being careless with new wheels right out of the box. Heck they layer my 16x8 522s on its face twice and Leta just say I got the mounting free cause I stormed into that damn shop. I know they are expensive wheels but hell they still weren't kinked or anything before had.

I will vouch for Vinnie's work, take it to him.

Honestly this is true. You could've kept complaining and told them you weren't coming back if they didn't buy you a new wheel and they would've done it. I used to work at discount tire and everyone there is just worried about how fast they can get each car out of the bay.


What are you wheel and tire specs? I would've been able to stretch your tires and kept everything unscratched but I don't work there anymore.

Those should stretch pretty nice. You will probably have some wheel poke out over the tire with the 40 side wall

That should be very easy....I run sizes close to that and it didn't take me any time to mount...nor did I have to use a cheetah or ether.

Yeah they closin soon and I can't make it there in time. Bass closes at 12 too. Called a place local I've used to mount stock tires and asked, his response "Naw man we can't do nothing like that"... click. Haha I'm just thinking you scared. So looks like I may have to wait but not sure ill be able to make it during the week with me getting off at 4 and them closing at 5

Neither Firestone, Gateway or Bass will stretch tires. 1st Chance Tire in LaVergne will do it, but their customer service stinks. Had to pick up tires and leave due to pathetic service!
