Hey guys. Anyone know of a tire place in the Morgantown area that has a "touchless" tire mounting system such as:

I've heard of horror stories of nice rims getting scratched up from the mounting machines that actually grab your rim. The Hofmann in the video above is guaranteed not to damage or scratch a rim. I wonder if any shops around here has them or if I would have to go to somewhere like Pittsburgh.

That machine is awesome.. but no one in the state has one that I know of. I have two corghi machines which are the step below... but also depends on the operator as well. You can't just clamp a set of nice wheels like you would just any old steel or alum rim

So would you guys be able to do it without screwing up the wheels?

Alright i'm pretty sure I'll get these on wed. If the weather looks like it might take a turn for the worse then I might wait. Might have to make 2 trips as well cause I can't fit 4 rims and 4 tires in my cobalt at once.
