Purchasing mounted and balanced wheels

Looking for some opinions from people that purchased their tires and wheels mounted and balanced online? I'm not sure I trust my local shop not to scratch the hell out of my $200 wheels so I'd rather just order them and throw them on myself. Only concern I have is receiving the wheels already scratched from shipping.

I've decided on AEV Savegre's and 285 Duratracs after a lot of research and consideration to what I'll be doing with the Jeep. Any forum vendors have these available mounted, Road Force balanced with TPMS installed?

I've ordered mounted and balanced wheels (for my car) from the Tirerack before. One of the weights fell off, but I stuck it back on. Outside of that, they were great.

The only two vendors that might would be Jason at Krawl or Dave at Northridge. When I bought my Pintlers Quadratec would not do it that way, so I bought my tires from DTD and wheels from Quad and mounted them here.
