Need help quick - should our wheels require a special tire mounting procedure?

Just took my 135i in with a set of four Dunlop Winter tires (235/40/18s at all corners) to get mounted on my stock M-sport style 261 rims. I got a call from the shop saying the rims are so narrow or something that they have to flip them over and mount the tires on them from the bottom. They want two hours of labor ($192) for the work since it'll require an assistant to do.

Anyone ever hear of this? Should I just go get the car and get it done somewhere else? I usually use this shop since they're good guys and they're one of the only shops around with the Hunter mounting and balancing equipment.

Really appreciate your suggestions
