Exclamation Good/cheap place to get tires mounted and rims put on?

Hey guys, I just picked up a set of '04 sti bbs rims for my wrx and also a set of tires seperately. Anybody have advice where to get the tires mounted to the rims and get them put on my rex? My car is pretty low so I can't fit on every lift. Hoping to do this tomorrow (Tuesday)

Thanks in advance!

yea i doubt they would have a problem. FTL or tight n tidy are good options as well as maybe a bit cheaper but there pretty far from federal way.

I'l have to swing by the store to see your ride with the new rims after you get them mounted. it should look hot

Well I called discount and they were gonna be $110 then I called Les Schwabb in Federal Way and its $140, but then I called Les Schwabb in Auburn and they quoted me $68 And I confirmed the price and asked for his name so i'm about to head down there in a minute.

Ya you'll have to check out the hotness for sure

My wrx rims lug nuts should fit right? At least until I pick up some better ones down the road.

Seriously -- Go check out Tight-N-Tidy Racing in Renton. The Colemans are awesome. I think it is $56 after tax plus you get a punch card so after 4 tire mount/balance the 5th is free.

I picked up the phone book and called everyone. I was getting quotes of $100-160 for mounting and balancing. Then I contacted NAPA auto, their quote was $10 each.
Well I am not taking my car to NAPA to get my wheels done, but what I did was call Discount Tire and tell them I was quoted $10 each, they were more than happy to price match.
They did a great job and I couldn't have been happier.

Any used tire place will do it fairly cheap. but it is not to much cheaper then taking it to a les shwab or discount tire. and there at the big name places they have all the newest equipment, it is maintained. plus they stand behind their work.
