Default Cheap place to break down tires & rims

Anybody know of a place on the East side of Michigan that will break down a bunch of tires for cheap? I have 3 or 4 sets that I'd like to break down, but not at $15/tire.

I'm in Hartland, hoping to not have to drive more than 30 minutes.

Thanks.

I think firestone charges 4 per wheel for dismount. And Walmart is about the same I think.
Hope this helps

Most junk yards have tire machines. Throw them a few bucks and they'll probably do it. The one I worked at did anyway.
