I picked this brand new set up from an individual in St. Louis last weekend. The new front tires came in yesterday and they will get the rubber mounted Saturday.

Looking good! Chose your tire mounting shop wisely! Look for a Hunter machine that grabs the wheels from the center hub. It also doesn’t require prying against the wheel lip like traditional machines do.

Thanks for the tip. Discount Tire is where I have the appointment. Their website says they use Hunter balancing equipment, but doesn't mention the brand of tire tool. I talked to them when I made the appointment and said that I didn't want to find any marks on the rims. He said they were particular and wouldn't cause damage. I hope.

One of the rear carbon rims from my R. 19x11.5. Got a work call during the install and could not get the front weight.
Nonetheless, look at that weight. This was the first time I got to hold one of these without a tire. Simply amazing tech.

I would not trust what they say. Find out if they have a Hunter. If they do not, call around and find a shop that does. If they mark-up a wheel, you’ll be hard pressed to find another NOS one. The Hunter eliminates the tire tech having to do a lot of the work manually.

Thanks for saving my rims. I did some dd today. Discount tire has Coates. A shop in my hometown has a Hunter, but it's the quick change model. I found a shop that installs custom wheels and have an appointment there Saturday.

Front wheel on my 2000 Roush. It came with a beat up set of chrome Roush wheels with peeling chrome and wouldn't seal. I replaced them with this set from AM.
