just came back from these guys. $12/tire. I had all seasons on my 15" rims, they removed the all seasons and installed summer tires. there is approx 8 bays that i could see tons of people working. 6 bays were full of hondas/toyotas and bmws they were fast and even though only 1 guy can speak english they were able to relay info about using hub centric rings. cost me $7 a piece, usually 9+tax at canadian tire. it was a rainy day today so it wasn't busy. Im happy with service and install.

Are there any similar places west of Toronto? Is that true that costco install/balance tires only if you purchase tires from them?

fuzionx23: so the $12/tire include remove old tires, install and balance new tires? Any disposable fee? Is appointment required?

Thank you.

RPM Automotive does a good job and never charges me extra fees. $15/tire for tire change, balancing, and installation. $20/set of 4 for changing tires with rims.

I need to mount some cheap 17" winter tires onto some cheap 17" aluminum rims. I am hoping to go somewhere that can do this for cheap, rather than the usual $20-$25 it costs per rim. I used to be able to get this done years ago for $10/rim for mount/balance. Any such place still exists?

If you do find one, do post the shop's name. GL.

it should be about $12-15 per wheel.

I don't think it varies much from shop to shop.

I would go to the closest one and be done with it rather than wasting time to save $10.

Get it done now before the rush (when snow hits)

The original Tires Tires link didn't work. Here is the new one.

Are they cheaper for the actual tires too?

Right now I have two different pairs of Michelin all seasons. I got just two last time, since I got a puncture in one. Michelin Harmony (good condition) and Michelin Primacy (need to be replaced). I'm thinking of going X-Ice Xi3 for $133 + $15 installation per tire = $148 per tire, plus $40 per steel wheel at Costco so total $188 installed per tire, minus $70 mail-in manufacturer rebate, unless it's cheaper to go with a place like Tires Tires. I believe Canadian Tire was $140 + 45 = $185, but AFAIK that doesn't include installation. I don't know how much CT charges for installation.
