Well I decided to take and have my tires mounted at Pep Boys. They seemed to have a well equipped shop and were trust worthy.

After all was said and done, I did notice some tooling/grab marks on each wheel from the machine..(3 grab marks in the circumference) It only scratched/chipped the teflon coating/clear coat, it didn't physically gouge or scratch the aluminum wheel.

Not noticeable unless you go look for it, but it still kinda bugs...can't they mount these things without marking up the damn clear coat finishes!?

it's not easy with low profile tires to begin with, and when you get guys who just don't overly care it sucks. They're more focused on turn around times these days anyhow which doesn't help the cause either.

This is why I always take my rims to truck shops or places that only do wheels. Sucks to hear they jacked up your wheels, but sounds like they are fixable.

Yea, I'll take it to a specialty wheel shop next time I need tires. It pays to pay a little more. LOL

Looks like I have found my answer. Been asking around if 305/45/22 will fit with no issue and looks like they do.

Any rubbing or anything? Need new tires on my R/Ts.
