I have 5 new wheels and am looking for a place to switch the tires out - any suggestions?
Les Schwab (where I bought my 4 used tires for $270 mounted & balanced) wants $181.86 to do it!
I am not 100% sure that I want to go this route, I might just get some used tires and have them mounted and then sell my current wheels and tires.... But I would like some feedback on tire shops that you guys like.
Lots of places (like Les Schwab) simply don't wanna do it, so they charge you an arm and a leg. I have limited choices up here, so I went to Big O and it cost me about $140 for them to put 4 33's on my old wheels, Les Schwab was about the same as you were quoted.

I called one of the Roseville Walmarts and the guy seemed too old to understand what I was wanting... but he was quoting me $8 per tire for dismount / mount / balance with $2 per valve stem. I will end up going in there and talking to someone to see if that's real or not.
I also called America's Tire - the guy quoted me $80, I said that sounded like a good deal.... he said "you bought your tires here, right?" I said "no". He then decided that it will cost more.... He said "I didn't factor that in, but since I already quoted you $80, it'll be $92".
