Tire Rack Installers in Bay Area

Hello all,

It's time for new tires and I'm considering ordering the ContiSportContact 3's from Tire Rack. Anyone have recommendations for a tire installer in the Bay Area - in particular one that is also recommended by Tire Rack? This should be a simple procedure, but I've had some bad experiences with tire stores scratching up wheels during the install, so I want to make sure I find a good, careful installer. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks for the suggestion, but they are a bit far from home for me. I decided to try Mach III in SF for the install. Looks like they worked on wheels for at least one member's M3 and they got good Yelp reviews....

I used them before way way way back in the days when I still had my Acura Integra. Great bunch of guys, although I'm not sure who's there now a days.

Got my tires installed at Mach III yesterday. Service was quick and smooth. Their prices are very reasonable as well. Spoke with Johnson for a while - nice guy and knows his stuff. I would definitely recommend them as a tire installer in SF. Might go back to them when I decide to get springs and exhaust.

Mach III is great for tires. Sell them cheap and can mount. The only place in SF worth going to for that.

So much for not modding this car. I fail.

LOL, speaking of fail...

BTW did you notice that the bay area section isn't listed anymore? But you can still search for the old threads. You should copy the FAQ into a new thread.
