Alcoa aluminum rims

Has anyone had a problem with a tire change on a 22.5" rim.
Did the rim get damaged?

I've had all six of my tires replaced (22.5" Accuride aluminum rims) ...two at a Best One Tire place in Ohio and four at a Best One Tire place in Alabama ...no damage either time. Truck tire places should be accustomed to working with aluminum rims.

I always take a large square of scrap carpet for them to lay the wheel on. It is very easy to get the tires on and off a 22.5 rim. No machine required.
