    Does anyone have a recommendation for a tire store near Scottsdale or Fountain Hills that knows how to mount tires on an exotic car without doing any damage to the under side of the car.
    Thank you.

    I kinda cheat ;)
    I order mine thru Tire Rack, have them delivered to the tire installer.
    I jack my car up in my garage and take them to the installer two at a time.
    They never see my car ;)
    This way I know they are not using an air wrench on my lugs, and I can torque them myself.

    I order from Tire Rack, drop ship to local Ferrari dealership, and they do the install. No fuss, no muss, no worries. I'd call your favorite local dealer and see if they'll do likewise...T

    That's exactly what I do. Scottsdale Ferrari has always installed my tires in that manner for (iirc) one hour labor.

    Also, one rarely hears bad words about Discount Tire. That whole business is top notch. I also shop there for tires for my exotics (have them installed at the dealer though) and I get tires on my other cars there. Love DT.

    I usually bring tire rack prices to my local discount tire, and they will always match tire racks prices. Discount tire has always been great! PS- I usually just bring my tires & wheels, not the car....

    Discount Tire off of Indian Bend put some nice scratches in my wife’s Merc wheel and chipped the aluminum valve without telling me. I only caught it because they cross threaded some Walmart stem cap on it because the OEM one would not go back on. Not impressed. Ferrari will go to the dealer, I just don’t trust anyone else.

    Had British Automotive Repair balance my Aston wheels while it was in for O2 sensors and they did a nice job.

    Late to this, but Wheel Specialists in Tempe is the way to go 100%. Hunter Roadforce machine. They deal with high end cars daily. I have them mount all my client sets and they also handle all my personal vehicles. The only thing I'll have Discount Tire do is check my air pressure and rotate the tires on the wife's SUV.
