Default What's the CHEAPEST PLACE to get tires MOUNTED AND BALANCED????? SOCAL

Well... I have 6 sets of rims now and I've been calling around to see where i can get tires mounted and balanced. I like buying tires online because that's where all the good deals are it seems, but the only problem with this is that it costs an arm and a leg to get them mounted and balanced. Here's a couple of prices I have gotten for mounting and balancing.

America's Tire Company = $20 for only 1- 15" tire mounted and balanced

Just Tires = $25 for 1 - 15" tire mounted and balanced

Local Tire shop = $15

I think these prices are pretty ridiculous and would like to know if any of you guys have any suggestions on where to go to get tires mounted and balanced.

I'm located in the 626 in ALHAMBRA!!!

if you are willing to go to city of industry, you can try my buddy's stereo shop that also deals with wheels and tires. call 626-336-3327 and ask for tai (it's called audio industry). tell him what you have and see what he can do for you.

THAT'S crazy. Most places charge anywhere from $10 to $20 per tire.

Maybe your tire shop is willing to do it for less because they're making a profit on the sale of the tires.
