Best tire shop in the bay area

Can anyone recommend a good tire shop in the SF bay area. I live on the peninsula. Need to get new tires put on and don't want my rims scratched up.
Thanks for any recommendations.

I had a good experience with the America's Tire folks in Fremont. They mounted some difficult-to-mount tires on my Forgeline wheels without scratching them up.

America's Tire in Fremont bent one of my stock 21" redline synergy wheels and scratched the red off another when I got a replacement pair of Pzero's from them.

My new tire lost air over night, and I when I went back the next day to have them find the leak, they said my wheel was bent, showed me the wobble, and insisted I must have done it.

To be fair, I bought a replacement wheel and they moved the tire over to the new wheel free, but I did purchase the extra hazard warranty from them. Bottom line, it cost me $1200 for 2 rear tires, TPMS rebuilt, mounting, and warranry, plus an extra couple hundred to buy a new wheel after they bent one wheel such that it would not hold air overnight.

If you use them, be sure to tell them you have difficult to mount tires on easy to damage wheels, and will gladly wait extra time to have one of their more experienced tech's do the job.
