Hopefully you have a good shop to get them mounted you don't want someone to accidentally scratch them. I would go to a shop with a Hunter auto 34 wheel mounting machine as they only touch the wheel in the center and are leverless. Just make sure the tech is qualified to operate it. It's worth it to pay extra for good mounting and balancing. I would make sure the use a hunter road force balance also.

If you need to find a shop I can probably locate the most qualified one in your area.

I would most likely use, IND or the old Wheelsto (which is not V-Road) do my mounting and balancing since I have heard they are the most competent. but thank you very much for the offer

I'll ask my contacts at hunter and see what I can dig up for you I am not in Chicago I'm downstate but I'll see if I can help.

On a side not I saw a "qualified" guy rip my $300 tire and I had to wait to get my wheels put on. It's aggravating when your excited to get them and then you are waiting along with potentially tearing up a wheel.

ISS is guess is guessing they will be finished and shipped by the end of Next week, "pending any set backs". I am getting very excited and have been updated the entire way which is nice because it completely takes the stress out of the situation. I'll see if they have any updated pictures for me to post :-)
