Default Mounting new wheels

Some shots of the wheels before the tires are wrapped.
Alrhough I drove it on the highway for 30 miles from the shop to my home, no rubbing no scrapping. Fit like butter. Fitment is very aggressive. ​​​​​​​

Must we use a tire installer that has the Hunter run flat equipment to mount our tires?

I use a local Discount Tire that has a Hunter Touchless machine, and the manager is the one mounting them up. He knows one ding, one scratch is coming out of their pocket.
Not dropping off a set of Forgelines and new tires off to the close one where some 17 yr old is gonna do the job.

I did lower it a bit with after market bolts, but then I had to raise it again. So what your seeing in the pic is semi drop. It’s a headache with these lowering bolts
