    Tire mounting

    Where do you guys get your tires mounted and balanced in the Reno/Sparks area?
    Got some new 35s and want to mount them up next month.
    Ayres is where I go for alignment and they said they can do it but $350 seems a bit pricey for 5 tires, but I know they would do a good job.
    It's my daily driver too.
    Thanks

    I just had some mounted at Affordable Tire in Sun Valley. They used the hammer on weights, if it matters.

    Cost me $90 for five including the disposal fee.

    I like the big O on Robb dr. They've mounted 35's for me for under $20 a tire lots of times.

    Thanks guys
    I've used that Big O when I lived on that side of town, there was a forum member that worked there at the time but don't remember his name.
    Affordable tire is close by, used them before. Fill up my propane bottles with them.

    Thanks again

    Walmart is always 18 ea mounted balanced or just 8 each if you don't balance. They do my 40's no problem but won't mount used tires with sidewall cuts.

    Guessing he meant 35 or 350 was including an alignment....which is still insane.

    I went in for an alignment to make sure I had no issues with the front end before I got new tires.
    When he found no problems I asked who he recommends to mount and balance 35" tires I'm getting, he said they can do it at sixty something a tire plus weights and stem. I even called back a week later to double check the price because I thought maybe I heard him wrong...... Nope

    Had Sun Valley tire do it, $100 mount and balance for five tires and take my old tires.
    Rides smoother running Mickey Thompson MTZ P3 then my Duratracs.
    They did a good job.
