Tire installer that won't damage rims + alignment in socal

Where can I find a good tire installer that won't destroy rims and does good alignment? Hopefully somewhere near rowland heights/west covina/la puente/diamond bar/walnut.

Thanks.

TWS in Walnut, ask for Mike or Albert. Tell them Anthony sent you with the SG M3. They'll take care of you. They are on Fairway right after the train tracks. There are usually Porsches parked in the front. Heres the number 909 468 1311. Good luck!

For tire mounting, there's a reason I have the Supreme Power license plate frame on my car.

Most people go to West End for alignment/corner balancing.

Definitely need coils for corner balance, but an alignment is only as good as the guy doing it.
For the alignment, you should consider CROSS in Alhambra at the end of the 710. They do everything by hand, just like they do it at the track. It's more labor intensive and thus cost a more.

Aren't machines more precise though?

I've even read some debates that handbuilt engines are not as well put together as machine built engines.

What ever way you use for the alignment, it's only as good as the person doing the alignment. You can screw up a car on an alignment rack pretty easily if you don't know what you're doing.

Try Evasive Motorsports for alignment and corner balance. They are in La Puente.

I used to get my alignments done at West End when I had my S2000. Great father and son team.
