So I just got new 17" wheels yesterday and I already have some 225/45 Pirelli P-Zero Nero's waiting to be wrapped around them. :D

I just called 5 different tire places and the average I've gotten is $15 to mount and $15 to balance, and then about $2 for a valve stem. So is that a good deal? I guess I figured it wouldn't cost me another $120 just to get the tires on the wheels.

Also if there is anything else I should look out for the advice would be much appreciated. Thanks. :thumbup:

kinda pricey. i found a place here locally that did the whole thing with new valve stems for $65. most were quoting about $90-100.
goodyear wanted $35/wheel PLUS all the extras! :crazy:


my only other advice is to post pics of the completed job! :p

BJ's price club will mount and balance for $10 per tire, but you stand a good chance of having scratched unbalanced wheels.

Trust me after these wheels and the 1BE setup that's coming in next week get on my car there will be plenty of pics. :D

Right after I posted this thread I found a place that will do it for $25 a wheel for mount/balance/valve stem. And then this morning one of my co-workers found a place for me that'll do it for $15 a wheel so I guess now I'm made in the shade. :cool:

Thanks for the replys. :thumbup:
