Good Orange County Tire Shop?

I'm looking for a good tire shop in orange county that will not damage wheels. From my search, so far the best seems to be supreme power parts.

Any other suggestions?

Evasive Motorsports in Santa Fe Springs ask for Randy. They even went a step further by taping my wheel weights to prevent it from flying off at the track.

They are great with mounting. They even used silver painted balancing weights on my ZCP's just like OEM when they swapped my tires for me. Zero marks or abrasions.

I always go to VMR to get my wheels RFB

I've never had a shop or tech that has done a better RFB.

Everytime i needed a new tire for the m3, i went there but they never had it in stock so i had to go to the dealer to get them.

They've always taken good care of me. I tell them no air tools and no scratches and they let me watch. They are careful.

But...they really messed up the alignment on my buddy's 350Z so...

These guys messed up one of my rims pretty bad and have been trying to repair it / find a replacement for over a month now. I wouldn't recommend them for nice rims.
