Default Tire Mounting & Balance SCIC?

hey guys, im looking for places that can mount tires and balance them for a great price... i hear that costco members get it done for $10 a wheel. anyone know of any other places?

Antelope Valley?
SFV?
OC?
Riverside?

I want this to be much of an informational thread for those of us who need to mount tires onto our rims, esp those who auto-x,track, or just eat up tires....

I'll do it for you on a weekend...just pay for the weights and buy lunch.

We have a Coats machine and a Hunter electronic balancer.

Since I'm doing it, no guarantees about not scratching the wheels though. But I've done a bunch recently, and no complaints.

Located in Long Beach.

I actually just called them today and they said mounting/balancing/stems are free!

they probably just including it in the price of the tire though.

Costco..........................hahhaha
i work there and run the tire center!!!!
we guarantee all our work.
if you only want a rebalance, $4.00 charge per tire.
mount and balance new tires/wheels, $9.00 per item.
not happy with balance........any costco will redo at no
charge within an reasonable amount of time since intial
install/ mount.
scratch or damage a rim..............costco will replace that
item at no charge.
will balance wheels/tires anyway you wish.
tape weights, regular weights, coated weights...........
static, dynamic, and other balance variations available.
