Originally posted by moribundman: My TireRack-recommended installer charges me around $18 (with tax) per tire, including disposal fee for old tires. That's about the eaverage price for tire balancing and mounting in my area. The real savings is the tire price. I pay about $100 per tire from the TireRack, while the same tire will cost me $150 a piece plus shipping locally -- if anyone even has it in stock. If you are buying inexpensive tires to begin with, you can likely find a better deal locally.

I have used Tirerack when Americas didn't have what I wanted, for instance some highly rated S speed rating bottom feeder tires for my truck. I liked their reasonable shipping price and delivery in just under 24 hours

I've yet to find a tire place that is consistent in balancing a tire no matter how much they charge Goose
