    Walmart just mounted a set of tires on my 2013 SRT Charger black vapor wheels and gouged them all up. I got an insurance payment from them so its all good, but I'm worried about the Hellcat wheels.

    I want to mount up some 305s on the factory HC wheels right after it arrives, but I'm not sure who to trust to mount them without damaging the wheels. Also, I need a place that will mount oversize tires...these are slightly out of range for the factory wheel width.

    Anyone have any ideas or recommendations?

    Its a new store with new equipment. The guy that did it has 15 yrs experience supposedly.

    You really think someone working at Discount, NTB, Firestone, Goodyear, etc will be any better? I went there because theyre right around the corner and cheap. Never had a problem before this goon got his mits on my wheels.

    Where would you go instead?

    Walmart?

    i took my family car there once and yes they hacked up my rims....ended up settling for $300-400....they admitted their machine was flawed...

    ive still never changed a tire w/o damage to the rim...never......Dodge City changed one of my 2011's when i had a flat and they were damn close to perfect...could have been Dr.Buick that changed it for me back then.....they did a great job, but i could still see 1 tiny mark or 2....typically everytime i change tires i expect my rims to be hacked to hell....and they always have been no matter where i take them......with black rims on the HC and how soft the finish appears to be im expecting to need a rim refinish every time i change tires

    Walmart? Never, ever, get anything done at a Walmart. Find a proper tire shop

    What I did with my Bee was search my area for someone who sells expensive wheels. They normally have the right machine. Ask if the machine touches the top of the wheel at all while mounting.
