    any local shops that won't rape me to swap wheels and tires?

    I have 2 sets of wheels/tires that i want to swap around. Are there any local shops that won't absolutely rape me doing so?

    It's worse down this way, its an easy 20-30 per tire. I am buying my own equipment to do them my self.

    My local WalMart only charged me $5/tire to swap a set of 36's for me. I didn't have them balanced, but I thought that was very fair given the size and weight of the tires. Not sure i'd trust them to actually put my vehicle on a lift, but for loose roll-in tires, i'd go back.

    This guy always advertise's on CL too. https://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/wt...755658904.html
    Seems pretty reasonable although the drive for you may offset the cost.

    Every time I took anything not stock to Walmart for tires they wouldn’t touch it. They have a stupid rule about only mounting stock size tires. Call around to your local shops and ask what they charge. Most places I deal with around here are pretty fair on price I think.

    Buying a tire machine was the best decision ever. I use balance beads and have had no issues.

    I’ve used airsoft pellets with good results too. Having a tire machine would be kick ass... so would a garage lol.
