Default Good tire shop around City of Industry?

I did a search and can't find any. Sorry if there was a thread created already.

Does anyone know any good tire shops around City of Industry that mounts without damaging the wheel?

If you're willing to drive down to Chino, we have the latest Hunter 'touch free' mounting and Hunter road force balancing machines.

City tire has decent prices, BUT their tech is a moron!!! I had a horrible experience there. Got 4 new tires installed, left went home and noticed my powder coated wheels were damaged. The "tech" removed the balance weights and used SAND PAPER to get rid of the old adhesive (unsuccessfully I might add) and SANDED the powder coat off the wheels! when I demanded a refund on the installation fee (after I showed them proof of the damage) they gave me the run around for a month till I had to yell at the guy on the phone. It's common sense that if you sand the finish on a wheel, it's gonna ruin the wheel. I'll never go there again, and do not want anyone else to have to experience what I went through

After a month of yelling at them over the phone, they finally did.
BUT the installation fee isn't even close to getting 1 wheel re-powder coated
