Tire mounting in MA?

Can anyone recommend a good shop to mount a new set of tires on new wheels? Bought the two separately and looking for a shop that won't damage the wheels during mounting? Not sure if I trust town fair tire, pepboys or such places... Thanks.

Shops will tend to charge more when they are getting just the risky end of the business -- the installation, if they are willing to do the work at all. I used to buy tires from Tire Rack and bring them to shops, but as my cars got fancier and my wheels bigger, fewer shops were willing and they wanted more money. Now I just go to Town Fair Tire in Concord, NH and have them price match the tires I want, buy the tires through them, and they install them. They have installed stock 245 and 265 on my Apex ARC9 18 x 9.5 and 10.5 and recently put 265 and 285 on those wheels. They have installed 235 and 255 snows on my stock 18 x 8.5 and 9.5. Never had an issue, but not sure they would be interested in just the install.

they did change names. went there before, owner was an ass, very rude and condescending. took it for what it is. guy who does the wheels does a nice job, but has the people skills of a 2 year old. Also rude to say the least.

I used Direct Tire in Watertown. They did an awesome job, did everything while I waited and fairly quick. Highly recommended.

Fast Track in Peabody is supposed to be pretty good. I haven't used them for it, but my coworker has with his E46...
