Good custom wheel shop on south shore?

Hi. I have new wheels coming tomorrow and need to get tires mounted. Looking to keep away from the big shops and junior techs who don't care. Want someone who takes good care on the south shore. Any recommendations? Thanks for the help.

So the wheels I ordered in 19" showed up in 20". I already bought the tire in 19". Debating whether to return the tire and go with 20" for summer wheels or send the wheels back and wait another 4-6 weeks for 19" wheel build... my gut is telling me 20" in NE is a bad idea. Kind of miffed at this point. Any thoughts?

FYI, I have had tires mounted on wheels worth ~$2k each, at Sullivan tire in Hanover, across from the mall. Not suggesting that there isnt still a risk, but, I was happy with the result (no issues). Also just about a month ago, had new tires mounted on our son's E46 M3 at this location, with out issue.

Thanks to you both. This is good as I live in Norwell so nice and close. Otherwise I was leaning towards the dealer at south shore bmw but They quoted me between 200-300 for mounting and balancing.

Btw, wheel maker is making it right for me, just have the lead time to wait again if I want the 19's.

Thanks. Thinking if I go with 20's I'm always going to be worried, especially if my wife ever drives it....a little patience and I'm sure ill be happy in the long run.

If I recall, it was ~$40 a wheel for mount, balance, and disposal. I had supplied, the tires (hoosiers). For the E46, the mount and balance was integrated into the price of the tires.

South Shore? Andy@ Pro-Spec in Quincy can get and mount pretty much any wheel for you. They have a nice machine for high end wheels.. never had a problem with them..

So finally dropped off the new wheels and tires at Sullivan tire in Hanover. Did a great job. I'll post a pic shortly.
