Tire Shops - Roseville Area?

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.

thanks!

Walmart. I buy my tires online and they switch my old tires with new ones for $40 mounted and balanced.

You could also try America's Tire. They have switched out tires for me for free. Of course I'm a regular customer of theirs.

I was thinking of calling Walmart - good to hear positive feedback I'll have to call America's Tire also.

Thanks guys!

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".

So I ended up going to Walmart - it was only $60.... all 5 tires dismounted, mounted on new wheels with new valve stems and balanced.

I was worried that they would just smash them on with an air gun, but was very pleased to see the guy grab a torque wrench and set them properly.
