Default Looking for a tire shop that handles high end wheels

Does anyone know of a tire shop that handles high end wheels? I need two new tires for a set of forged 3-piece wheels, and I have been to 3 tire shops and each one said that they would be happy to do the work but could not guarantee they wouldn't scratch it. Each said they could be as careful as possible but because of the lip and the machine they use to mount and dismount tires it might leave marks on the chrome. They did say that discount tire has a machine that could handle the change, but last time I was there the scratched the hell out of one of my rims. They didnt want to replace the rim, took two months to straighten out, so I dont want to go to them...

Any suggestions?

They've done 3 sets of tires for me, and I haven't had an issue with them at all. They only charged me like $40 for all 4 as well. I don't have fancy dancy rims though...just stock 18s.

I've always had Discount Tire mount tires on my Roush wheels. They've mounted tires perfectly twice.

They refinish wheels well but the guy who balanced my set was... special with the amount of weights they put on my wheel. A&L redid it and was much better.

Wheel of America does. It's like $120 and they refinish the wheel as well.

I don't actually know the price for sure but a guy here got a dented rim repaired and refinished and I recall it being something like $120. Here's their info if you want to call and ask.
