I just picked up 4 tires. I need to have them installed. If you or anybody you know can get me a deal on a mount and balance please let me know. Thanks :wiggle:

Farm and fleet I think does it for $13-$14 per wheel... :dunno:

I bring them just the wheels and new tires and they mount balance for me.

^^^^^^^^^^^ What he said.

Some full service gas stations will do it as well. Good luck finding one. I only know of one in Schaumburg.

Which Farm and Fleet? Because I called Blaine's out in Woodstock and they quoted me at $103 out the door.

Yeah Devin was telling me about that new firestone today. I didn't call them because I didn't even know it was over there. The one over by Advance told by $100 out the door. And is it just simply $30 off? or do I have to spend a certain amount first?

That's what I like to hear. Can I come grab that from you tomorrow?

Shit was close when I left at 5:45 to go to work. He was messing with the TB to get it ready for the guy to tune it though. So I don't know if he started her up or not...

x3

And for future reference, if anyone needs mounting/balancing done, I can hook you up during the school year! My school just got a brand new balancer :)

Walmart - $5 mount/balance, $7 mount/lifetime balance. I'm pretty sure any supercenter has a tire center.
that's a great deal!


walmart by me (3 of them) refused to touch rcompound race tires or my aluminum wheels (told me steel wheels only).. so if you have a walmart that does aluminum wheels and rcompound tires you don't buy from them for those prices, please post up the location that does cause that is great info to share!

Hell, if I could have gotten mounting and balancing that cheap, we would have never bothered to invest in our own equipment so maybe you can save someone else the same sort of quandry/investment!:bigthumb:

The one near me - Crystal Lake on rt 31 just south of 14- mounted a couple tires on my aluminum truck wheels. They weren't anything fancy, so they might've not been picky about it. There's another supercenter on randall rd in algonquin as well.
