I've been using a local chain store, T.O. Haas, last time I bought new tires there is was $12.50 a tire to mount and balance add another 12.50 a tire for road hazard, petty good deal.
I used to use Americas Tire. They do not align so these days it's a local shop close to home that is a one stop do it all. I price check and they are competitive and I'm becoming a regular customer.
Motorcycle tires are a whole different deal. I mount and balance my own on all my bikes.
Yeah, that's what I use too if I buy the tires online. But haven't done that in a while. Best price locally was about $80 mounted and balanced at a local tire chain. But I've found it's just cheaper buying tires at Costco and mounting and balancing is about $20 a tire, but they only do that for tires that they sell and that includes a free road hazard warranty.I use Tireracks list of installers and go by price/distance. Print the price sheet out as some charge more for walk-ins without.
Like the title says, where are you all getting tires mounted and balanced these days? Seems like the price went through the roof since last time a looked around at this. Discount tire wanted $145 if I brought my own tires in. Tire shop across the street from my work wants $45 a tire for mount and balance if I bring my own tires. Seems like a lot of money for a shop to probably scratch my wheels
Do it myself!
I use Walmart because they actually torque the wheels properly and don't just throw an air gun at them. The price is good, but the lines are too long. 4-hour wait and over a dozen people waiting in line when they open
That’s a weird dealership, the Toyota and Honda dealers near my work sell tires at a price about the same as any other tire place around here and not that far off Tire Rack. Not a great selection (mostly Yokohama) but the price is good.I use Sam’s Club usually. They have a very limited selection of tires in my size which is P205/75/R14 and won’t mount them if you didn’t buy them there. But still I can get them to do it cheaper than I can at the dealership I work at plus I forgot how to use the tire machine because no one comes to the dealership for tires and pay double the price or more.
Even the Mercedes dealership isn't that bad. It is higher than other places but I guess people like going there. Every once in a while the dealership runs specials on tires and it makes it just a little bit more than other places so it attracts those that don't want to go anywhere else besides the dealership.That’s a weird dealership, the Toyota and Honda dealers near my work sell tires at a price about the same as any other tire place around here and not that far off Tire Rack.
