Default Where to mount tires - scratchless?

Where is a good place to get tires mounted on 18" rims without scratching them? I've heard some shops have machines that are meant for larger rims/low profile tires?

I've searched and it appears ppl recommend Bender at OK Tire (Marine at Oak). Do they have such a machine and is Bender still with them?

I prefer a shop in Van/Bby/Rich area.

Thanks.

OK tire on sw marine is what I would recommend

They did a great job on my tires, no scratches.

Also I have heard similar things for the OK tire in Langley.

How much did you pay for 4 wheels mounted ?
I was in a pickle when the snow hit and got stuck with about 100 bucks out the door . .

Is this the going rate ?

I've head good experiences with Dueck on Marine when they mounted my R-Comps, great guys and definitely know what they're talking about.

My friend went to Country Tireland in richmond 11831 Machrina Way. Don't know if they are still open though. Can get a friend to always roll on by to take a look.

I always volco in Coquitlam you can tell them you picky and they will mask off the rims just in case your side walls on your tires a really stiff as they are able to scratch the rim as well.

Advance Motorsports in Coquitlam has an amazing machine for low-pro tires and larger rim sizes. $25 each mounted and balanced. I think its the best machine in vancouver.
