Default Is bender still the man?

Ok, so I searched for the best place to get my new Kumho MX's mounted on my "new" Rotas...and everyone seems to say bender (Johnny) at O.K. Tire on Marine Drive. Does he still work there? Is he still THE man to mount/balance/install my new tires and wheels? Thanks!

Ok, so bender hooked me up for the mount/balance/install of my wheels a few days ago GREAT guy, I also recommend him! Here's a few pics of my car that my brother snapped at the Mission track day:

I have SPT Pink springs...slight drop. The front fenders have a larger gap since the fender opening is larger than the rear fenders. I would like to bring the front down slightly more, but camber plates are expensive! I like the slightly stiffer (224F/195R) spring rates of the SPT springs, since I live downtown and the roads are bumpy!

Geez, why all the heat about the wheel gap all of a sudden? My springs are still OEM Subaru, so the front gap will be larger, that's just the way they are! I'm not going to drop the front down, and lose the correct suspension geometry and handling benefits of the springs. Like I said, camber plates are expensive!
