So my kid gets me new tires for one of my bikes. Had them shipped to my house. I call around in Kingman and no one will mount them due to liability issues. I tell them that I would bring the wheels only (off the bike), no way. They tell me that I would have to buy the tires from them and have them mounted and balanced for additional cost. Oh, the bike has to be there too, which would cost additional cost for labor to remove and install the wheels/tires. So, for shits and giggles I asked them how much the two tires installed OTD cost. $865!!!!

There is one guy that will do it and he charges $90 per wheel if they are off the bike. If I have to, I’ll remove the tires and install the new ones. Just need the balancing done. I would like to bring the wheels/tires without the bike And have them R&R/Balanced. Any recommendations/referrals?

I used to take mine to Cycle Gear in vegas. I think they're $25 a tire if you don't buy from them but I change my own now.
I think Gear Up will do them. Bought my Haley there and saw people bringing in tires.
