Default Best place for tire mounting and balance

I need to get new tires and I heard tiretrends.com is pretty good. The bad thing is, they don't do tire mountings.

Is there any good place around here and how much for each tire?

The guy recommended that Cosco would do it for $10 per for balancing and mounting. Is that an average cost?

i know it's expensive, but try not to go to the cheapest places possible, because it could translate into poor work and damaged wheels and no money saved.

ask bender (johnny) here on this board. he works for ok tire on marine drive and will treat u well.

otherwise, advance auto in richmond.

My rims are already scratched up. Well not my scoobie.

Thanks for your opinions though

So when they mount and balance the tires, do they help you install it on your car as well or do I have to do it myself?

No, you're thinking of the deal TMR had going for mounting..... but it wasn't for wheels.

yeah the guy at tiretrends recommended me to go to costco too but i'm not a member... i would just watch them do it so if anything happens (like scratching rims) then ... yeah

when i got my tires mount they put it on the car for me too... i claimed that i didn't know how...or no tools or something... hmm.

for alignment, i definitely recommend jason at dale's alignment in surrey!! (it's also the tidyest shop i've ever seen)
