Recommendations for shop to mount 20" tires/wheels in NOVA

Been searching and looks like Curry's in Chantilly and/or Falls Church and Mach V have been recommended. I used to go to Curry's in Reston for everything on my other cars but had bad experiences recently after they changed mgmt/employees.

Any better recommendations or newer info would be much appreciated. I don't want to take any chance on wheel damage/scratches.

Thanks!

No experience with tires but they installed my suspension and some other things as well. I thought they did a good job. Going back there on Monday with my new car. I took my Nissan to Currys to get the runflats off, which they did, but they scratched up the lug areas with their guns. Will not be going back there anymore. I went to the Currys in Arlington.

RRT is great. You should talk to the owner James. He is a friend of mine and should be able to take care of you. Give me a call and we can do a conf. call to get you taken care of. RRT is my top choice for bimmer work.

So, thanks to those who offered advice. Daimon wasn't available this week at Curry's Chantilly, and they actually recommended I call the Curry's Dulles for some reason. Aaron now works at the Dulles location but was off today as well. I ended up going with RRT and they did an awesome job, no scratches! They have pretty impressive facilities and some brand new equipment, including a touchless tire mounter they just got 3 weeks ago, hunter road force balancing machine, and a pretty fancy looking alignment machine (all a little over my head, but very shiny). I have a very open 5 spoke wheel design and they hid the wheel weights behind the spokes which was very nice touch not done on my last install. They were pretty attentive to detail and even put each wheel lock opposite each valve stem, etc. I would highly recommend them for a tire/wheel install, as was the best experience I've ever had with this by far. Their estimate on springs install on the other hand was a little reedonkulous...maybe chose someone else for that particular service.
Will post pics soon.

RRT was the shop where the Vossens were mounted.
Excellent shop and I highly recommend them.

I've always been treated well at RRT. I have also visited Mach V and they are pretty decent to. Took good care of me.
