I can vouch for Javi at True Methodz. I've seen him change a few hoops without any damage at all to the rim. Pretty sure he charges $10/wheel off the bike. Never seen him scratch one...smooth as butter. He even shines up the wheels most of the time after mounting/balancing. Top notch workmanship and customer service

Ooh, I wanna come play with the grinder Javi!

I'll vouch for Javi's attention to detail - I rode over to order some parts and he almost begged me to let him wash my bike! :laughing6

Good Luck with that. Learn to do it yourself is my best recomendation.
It sucks when you get your wheels back damaged cause they will most likely never be the same even if an attempt is made to repair them.

BMW K1200 R Sport
Honda 305 Superhawk project bike
working on a motoped







I worked in a shop for about a year. In that time I never scuffed a wheel while doing tire changes, why is this so hard for people. I don't remember doing anything special or difficult and I worked with all sorts of wheels from OEM to BST to Dymag. If a shop meses up your wheel during a tire change I wouldn't trust them with anything else. I had about 15 minutes of instruction and never had a problem.

OH, and the pic I've seen of Scooter's work have all been awesome.

I think some people use muscle instead of technique and thats what screws up rims...plus they dont give a t about other peoples chit.
