Default Local Place to buy/install Kumhos (Sunnyvale/SC/Mtn View)

OK, so got the wagon a week ago and picked up my spare stock wheels today.....it's time to get ready to go RACING

But, my "tire hookup" for my Impala SS has since closed on Saturdays.....and they are in Redwood City (too far to get there on a weekday from Sunnyvale). SO, I'm looking for one of the following :

Place that will install Kumhos that I have drop-shipped from Tire Rack

OR

Place that will sell me some Kumhos at a price at/near what Tire Rack sells them for, AND install them.

Anyone know of any places/contacts that can do this for me? I thought I remembered folks mentioning Mtn View Firestone. I also have used Custom Alignment before for wheel balancing, but they are not a cheap shop on most things

Thanks in Advance!

ditto ATC. they fix your flats for free!

only reason i didnt go ATC for the ROTA GB is that when i picked them at red star, tito had a set of kumhos sitting and there and well... the rest is history.

One more for ATC. They also have lifetime balance and rotation for ~$8/wheel. Oh, and they're all over the country in case you move or are travelling.

Wheelworks of Sunnyvale (the one on El Camino near 85) ask for Daniel I think it is. He matched the TireRack price for me (their shipped price)

If you buy the tire insurance, they can often take that out of the price of the tire (guess they get spiffed on the tire protection stuff)

I will always go to ATC. Their customer service is great, they do their best to take care of you, especially with repairs, etc. They even patched my G/F's tire for free, just because I was a costomer. even if it's a few bucks more, its worth it in the long run. Plus, I'm a teacher and i have some ex-students working at the Campbell store, so I may be able to score a "special deal" when I get mine this week.

Kumhos?!? why didn't you get Sumitomo HTRZ II's instead? i'm getting rid of my crap Kumhos and waiting til my Sumitomos arrive at ATC. really they do price matching?!? i better go ask them when i come back and get the tires in a couple days. at tire rack, the sumitomos are $79 each i think for 205/45/16's which i'm getting.
