Call Auto Talent or Renn Spec and ask them if they can recommend someone... there is a pretty good shop in Van Nuys but I don't know their name unfortunately.

Also, you could call the SAs at your BMW dealer and ask them. I did that and they were happy to recommend a local shop that did a good job.

For a quick job I like Firestone....they do both a patch and plug on your leak.

yeah my rear tire has been leaking air really slowly, I am assuming it has a nail it. I was going to take it down to the dealer but the dealer told me to take to take it to any tire shop because they don't do patchs.

I'd suggest new tire though. I'm pretty sure tire patches are temporary quick solution.

unfortunately i have two nails in it, and one is by the corner which they say is not repairable. So it looks like I am getting a new tire. Thanks for the help though guys.
