    I was fearing this issues after reading all the horror stories of tire shops not willing to change the tires on the GT350R carbon fiber wheels.

    Anyone know of anyone in the Northeast Ohio area?

    thanks,

    Jim

    Look for your local HRE/Forgeline dealers. They will probably mount tires on your carbon wheels.

    This wasn’t your Black R last Fall by chance in Fairlawn was it? AC03F986-37F7-4E0A-84C8-587DB09FD4AA.jpeg

    Call Automotive Excellence in North Royalton. I think they have a highend touchless mounting machine. I’m going to call them this spring. Let me know what you find out.

    Nice R by the way. I have a 2018 same color combo. Where did you find yours at? I bought mine from the Chicago area.

    No sir, I have a Magnetic that matches my F-150 Lariat, including the stripes (kinda). I won't take it out of hibernation until the rain washes away the salt :like:

    Thanks, I will call them tomorrow or then next day and update the thread.

    I bought mine in Kent at Klaben, they wanted $5k over sticker, I said no way and told them I'd drive to Michigan and buy the exact same car at sticker. They came back with $2500 over sticker, I said it will still cost me less to take my enclosed trailer to go to Michigan. They sold it at sticker. Picked it up on Sept 7th.

    Nice, magnetic is a great color on the car. That’s neat that it matches your truck! I previously had a 2016 that was magnetic with black stripes before I traded it in for my R.
