go to Amherst Tire, have Phil do it. I will vouch for his work, and would ask him to do mine anyday (actually, he has done a few of mine...)

Town Fair is tough, especially if you dont buy the wheels or tires from them. If you dont wanna make the trip up to Amherst, go to the west springfield town fair instead of the springfield one. They will mount and balance the tires for you if you bring them in, but will not take them off a car or put them back on.

hope this helps!

Tire Warehouse does a nice job and will replace any rim they scratch.
I have had several sets of tires mounted over there and they have always been fine.
Expensive though. $20 a rim I think.

Tire Warehouse on Burnett Rd in Chicopee does real nice work. They installed all my stuff for me. I think they charge $12 - but I'm not positive. If you buy tires, its free of course.

Its more expensive for low profiles. I think its really stupid that they charge more just cuz they use a different machine, but whatever.
(And they are in Ludlow )

Apparently not so low they need to use the special machine.
Maybe their pricing has changed since the last time one of up was there.
I know it cost me around $90 to have my winter tires mounted on my JDM STI wheels. And it took 3 guys to get them on there without scratching the rims.
