I just bought some tires from tire rack & took 'em to Walmart. It cost me $3.50ea to mount. I drank that much of their coffee while waiting. $5 ea to balance. I just stayed away from all the other add ons. The $2 per tire fee for disposal. I'll either do the free recycling offered here or make a swing for my grandkids. The fee for new valve stems. Mine doesn't leak, so why replace them? Fees for lifetime balancing, nix that. And a few other odds & ends, all no's. So I ended up spending $34 for mount & balance. That's about a third of what it cost for me to fill up several months ago. I still have all my hands & eyes, & the coffee was good.
