Default Ann Arbor area tire shop hookup

Anybody work at / have a buddy at a local shop?

I have 2 sets of wheels/tires.

I need 8 dismounts, 4 mounts and 4 balance.

Was quoted an arm and a leg, not worth it. ($100 +)

Would do cash after hours or something and help out also.

Thanks

Firestone at Ellsworth/Hewitt is halfway decent on prices. might cost you around $50-60 for that. T&R I believe?

guy on the phone said $80 plus tax. getting cheaper, appreciate the lead.
Was really looking to drop around $50, but i might be nuts?

Call my Buddy Dan Hoffenbecker at Side Street Garage in Chelsea. he is a dealer for www.tirerack.com
I asked him a few months back if he would take care of GL4x4 memebers and he said he would match any price you can find on tire rack products. tell him Dana sent you.

check walmart, I had 4 dismounts, 4 mounts and 4 balances for $34. I think it would cost you another 4 dismounts at $3.50 each, so should be like $48!

x2 on Walmart. I got my 5 tires mounted/balanced for half what Belle Tire said. I was shocked at the price difference.
