    @SCSPerformance @scs_vuth

    I went to drop off a pair of wheels and tires (for my trailer) at Discount Tire. They informed me that their corporate office has sent out a notice to all of the branches, that they are no longer allowed to mount tires on SCS wheels. They said they've had to deal with too many paint issues that result during the mounting process. Said the SCS paint is too soft and the bead edge is too sharp, so it just comes off no matter how careful they are.

    Fortunately, I have a long history with the shop I went to, so they're doing it for me regardless. But you may want to start working with DT to get this resolved...

    It's probably has a lot to do with the fact that they don't carry our line of wheels to be able to offer to their customers. They don't like to take on extra liability when customers bring in outside wheels or tires. Les Schwab is the same. They will not mount tires not purchased from their stores.

    DT tire techs tend to use front-coning when it comes to balancing tires b/c it makes things quicker for them, but this does tend to lead to chip paint in the centerbore area. Our wheels such as the F5 or Gen5 do not have a center cap so it would be noticeable right away. Not many wheels, stock or aftermarket, are cap-less so with them using front-coning, any chips are generally "covered up" with a center cap so the customer never really has a clue. I would guess that 90% of DT customers are your average Joes with stock wheels and tires. The more careful method would be "back-coning" or using a "pin-plate", but this takes a little more time. Time is money to most shops, not just to DT. These 2 methods will prevent 99.5% of those chip paint issues.

    Personally, I like to deal with shops that mount and dismount tons of aftermarket wheels on a daily basis. These shops tend to have the latest and greatest scratch free wheel and tire equipment with tire techs that actually know what they're doing. They might not be the cheapest, but are usually worth the extra cost for a headache free installation. I no longer go to DT after they turned me away bc I brought an outside set of 20" wheels and tire to get mounted. This was about 15yrs ago. If DT chooses to turn away customers with SCS wheels then it's their loss.

    Do you know if Firestone has the same policies? Just ordered a set of new tires on Simpletires to be installed by them; would hate for them to scratch my new wheels from you!

    I have no clue about Firestone. Before Bert's post, I had no idea that DT would issue any type of policy like that. However, I do understand how and why business would come to that type of conclusion.

    All you need to do is ask them if they use back-coning or a pin plate to balance wheels/and tires. If they do then you're most likely safe. If they don't then I would look else where.

    All I know is my buddy had his stealth 6’s chipped during mounting and has been waiting for 3 or 4 months to get them replaced by discount tire. Pretty sure they just don’t want to deal with the hassle of having a pissed off customer that they can’t get wheels for

    Something ive been wondering about... how bad will those kids wreck my wheels trying to balance them lol

    Im not super concerned about some scratches, as these wheels are going to get hammered on offroad. But the idea of some guy marring up my wheels because he was being lazy setting it onto the machine infuriates me. I may end up just buying the tires from AT/DT and then having the local race shop mount/balance them.

    You're local so go to WD Garage in Fremont. Talk to Zoeb and tell him Vin sent you. Or Auto Innovations in Milpitas. Both legit shops that know what they're doing and uses proper tools based on the wheels they're working with.

    Ordered Monday and they showed up today. Sadly I have to wait 2 weeks for tire install while looking longingly at the stack of boxes in my living room.

    No 265/70/r17 .. Did rub in the front with the -10 offset on the wheels (stock suspension) so just removed them for now and all good!

    Definitely more things to do on the truck, a lift specifically, in the future that hopefully fixes that problem.

    Not on the flap part, but where the mudflaps bolt on to the fender flare/body. In the middle there's this stupid 0.5-1 inch bulge (yes I said bulge) that seems to serve no purpose and it was rubbing there. Might heat gun or mallet it down and try again.

    I see. Thank you for that. I currently have 17x8.5 +0 on 265/70 and i was rubbing on the mudflaps so i took the fronts off. Now no problem. I was looking at the scs wheels too but all come in -10.

    Np! Yeah I went from stock OR wheels which are 16x7 +25mm I believe. Now at 17x8.5 -10mm which is a net 35mm difference, not insignificant. But for you going from +0 to -10mm should be good? Like I said, no rubbing on my end without the mud flaps. Also just ordered some plasticolor cheapo flaps that I'm going to put in the front now haha. They're supposed to be minimal / non protruding.
