Default Need tires mounted (Framingham)

Hoping someone can recommend a tire shop to mount my snows w/o destroying my rims in Framingham area?
Had an appointment last night to mount them at NTB, but the service guy there did not seem very confident in there ability to mount tires without scratching my rims to hell.

What size wheel/tire? Unless it's something extreme, any halfway decent shop can take care of this for you.

Stock 235/45/17 on my 15'. In my experience most of my wheels have ended scratched while having tires mounted. Just trying to prevent the first time I swap tires on the WRX, the wheels don't end up destroyed.

'15. Not 15'.

Stop going to that place that's been scratching up your wheels. Go literally anywhere else.

Okay

I don't plan on going anywhere that has done a poor job mounting my tires in the past. Just figured someone here maybe able suggest a shop has a good reputation for not scratching rims!

Well other than the scratched thru the paint right rear wheel and a tire out of balance, great!
