What do shops charge to get tires mounted in your area? I called a local place near by and they wanted $25-30 a tire to mount them on my new rims. Whats the deal, its cheaper to have 37" muds mounted and balanced than it is to have some little 26's mounted without balancing...?

I haven't been able to find a very good deal on mounting either. Best deal I found was $10 bucks a tire.

Can't you take these tires anywhere to get them mounted and unmounted... I mean cars used to have 14" wheels on them back in the day....about 97 or so..

When are we going to see a RHino with 28's????? :shock:

I swap tires off of rhino rims all the freakin time. I do it myself on my next door neighbors tire machine. I have well wore out my welcome there, but he doesn't trip on me using it as long as I don't ask his workers for help, but it's become so easy that I'm pretty freakin good at it now! I don't see how people could charge more than $15 for swapping a complete set. $10 sounds even more reasonable for the ammount of time it takes. Just gotta be careful not to bend or crush rim with hydraulic pressure that clamps the light weight alloy wheels most people use. I did it to one the 1st time, then I started letting off a lil.....

SandBug, thanks for the idea of the tire changer at Harbor Freight, Just bought mine, they had it on sale for $39.00, works great and is easy to use.

Didn't know discount would do it for $5 a tire, but I always use Wally World. That is what they charge.

I used to work at a shop that had a policy if you bought the tire from us, we mounted it for free. I guess those days are over.

Well, a lot of people switch depending on sand or dirt, so people just need to buy more wheels and tires! I have some old wheels for sale. I will try to post up some pics soon.

does it scratch your wheels up. thats the only thing im worried about because my new wheels are powdercoated on the edge.
