    How much do you pay to get tires mounted?

    I don't currently have tools and need to put my new tires on. I called the shop to see how much it would cost to get the new rubber put on the rims with the wheels already off the bike and was told $77.50 + tax.

    Over $80 to mount two tires seems pretty excessive. Especially since getting four truck tires mounted and balanced was $40.

    Is that a normal cost? If it is I can see why people go through the trouble of dooing their own tires.

    They count 30 min of labour per tire + disposal fee, + shop suplies, + taxes

    I have checked some places in WA all go for $40-50 per tire, my friend did in LA and Salt Lake city for 50+.
    Vancouver BC same rates but in CAD.

    Many shops charge more when they do not supply the tires.
    They have a point ...........when things go wrong with the tire and the customer wants the installing dealer to make things right.

    I was charged like $95 for rear tire installation last year (they charge like $75 an hour labor). I didn't take the rim off the bike though. I thought it was ridiculous, but it was the only dealer within an hour and a half drive (when I lived in rural Minnesota.) I now have the option to call around to different shops.

    Get some tools and do it yourself? You only get bloody knuckles the first time, I swear. Learning how to do it on the road is invaluable experience too...

    The dealers, for the most part just do because they can. (overcharge)

    I went to a movie the other day, and the sodas in the machines were $4.25

    Seems impossible to imagine anyone paying that, but I saw more than a few people buying them.

    I would scour any nearby biker hangouts or local bike forums, or Craig's List even, and try to locate a smaller private independent shop, or some private non pro enthusiast with a small garage and a manual tire changing machine, and see if you can get a better deal. (if you don't have the time/inclination/space to do it yourself.
