    Mounting tires on rolled lip.

    okay guys...I am probably picking up my rims at the start of next week. They are in the gotcha series from Boyd coddington....my question is: Can any tire shop mount my rims? they have a rolled-lip and I am afraid that the guys mounting them will get them all scratched up. I phoned around to some places and most of the idiots didn't think I could mount them. I was like "how the hell do all the americans get them mounted?" the guy was like "maybe they have a special attachment or something." My dad has smoothies and they have kindof a rolled lip and the guys mounting them scrathed them....gah...what do I do?

    Not sure if this helps but around here alot of tire shops broke a lot of wheels with a standerd tire changer and now they got this tire changer that cups around the tire and pushes in on the center of the tread until the side wall pops up and then they set the wheel in and take the pressure off and it sets them. knida hard to explan.... but their is no bars, no turning, no metel ever touches you wheels. Its pretty neat
    but it kinda pisses me off b/c it used to co$t $5 a tire to put on and now its $20

    I just paid $100 to get my tires mounted and balanced. Very overpriced if you ask me, but not a scratch on them, so I guess it was worth it.

    First thing you should make sure is that they have the PLASTIC head on the tire machine, not the metal one.
    this is a test of the sig
