How much does your shop charge for a tire change?

Recommended Posts

My local shop charges $66 for each. I feel like this is kind of a rip off but don't know if it's worth it to buy a press and spoons to use on 3 tires every 2 years.

keep calling  around, thats a pretty fat rip.  

 

found a local place that mounted and balanced my two tires for 50, and if you buy the tires through them its free, but i didn't realize that til after i had already purchased mine.

Cost varies widely. Where the tires are purchased and if the wheel is a carry in.  Don't know local cost, I have never paid for a tire mount.

I just got my rear tire replaced. Took the wheel off and brought him a tire I bought online. Only took 15 minutes including the time to balance it, cost $14 B)

damn, thats not at all what the store in fairfield qouted me.  she said 80 bucks for the pair but they would need to keep the wheels for a couple days.   :excuseme:

Cycle year in Santa Rosa won't even do tires anymore the last time I checked. Plus our CG burnt down a few weeks ago.

I go to The motorcycle shop on Piner and he only charges $10-15 a tire on the bike and I always bring in a online bought tire.

I get tires changed and turned for free when ever I want at my local bike shop. Normally $15.00 but free with any tire purchase from the shop. Note, I'm in Australia.

Most places around me charge around $30-40 / wheel (off bike).  I got a bead breaker, wheel balancer, and some tire irons at Harbor Freight for around $70 total so it's paid for itself after changing 2 tires.

Changing tires is easy and a good skill to have. You can also balance tires at home yourself. Just need wheel weights and a couple pieces of 2x4 for a stand. Dirt bike tires don't need to be balanced.

You can statically balance a tire that way.. but it's only half the job.

 

 Waste of time and not really the way you want to balance a street wheel.

 

 Dynamically balancing is the better way and well worth the effort and cost. 

 

 I bought a Snap On dynamic balancer for under $400 used... Many good deals are out there.

Worst deal ever!   :lame:

 

Buy tire in house  wheel on bike $49.50

Buy tire in house wheel only, $24.25

Bring tire wheel on bike $75.00

Bring tire wheel only $37.50

Very expensive IMO.
