Winter to Summer tire swap cost?

Anybody knows how much costco charges for the winter to summer tire(not on rims) swap? Tried calling them multiple times but nobody picks up. Btw tires are not from costco, but I have the membership.
I am in Milton, looking for somebody that is cheaper than $70.

Unless both sets are from them, they wouldn't do it, anyways. They only service their own stuff, just like if you have a leak or flat, they only work on tires sold by them, even if you are a member.

Try dealerships. Over here, some charge a better rate than the tire store.
The Devil made me buy it - RFD. :twisted:

Direct Mazda charges 19.99 assuming both tires are on their own sets of rims.

SimplyTire charges 29.99, or starting at 49.99 with balancing.

Direct Mazda = $80 + tax
Simply Tire = $80 cash
Nissan Milton = $110 +tax

Simplytire and Greenbay are a bit too far for me. Anything cheaper in mississauga?

Tires23 at Dixie & Matheson. Probably around $50.
These folks have taken over RFD, so I'm done here.

Just buy some rims. You will save money in the long term. Also, the inner bead of the tire can wear out if they are regularly mounted and unmounted. This makes them unmountable.

cheap !! for those in the Thornhill / Scarborough / Markham area

Sorry, too far for the OP but I thougth I would mention this anyway.

Markham-Laidlaw Auto Centre and Go For Tires in the area are supposed to be good too. As far as I know, Markham-Laidlaw is the cheapest place in the GTA for Hunter Roadforce balancing.

WTF? Why does that joy city tires place charge $50 for 15" changeover and $10 more for each additional inch?
Never heard of that one before.

SimplyTire now charges higher amounts for larger tires.
It probably takes more time / labour to move the bigger tires around. They are heavier so you have to move slower to protect the rims.
