Houston Wheel and Tire Shops

I just my new wheels and tires and need somewhere to get them mounted and balanced for a reasonable price.

I called Discount tire and they want $250 and thats just an estimate...In my book thats outrageous. I would figure around $100 bucks would be fair. They are 37" tires on 22s.

I live in the galleria area and work on the west side towards katy.

I bought the rims and tires direct from the manufacturers.

It's always that much bud. If you take it to one of those mexican shops they may or may not screw up your truck but your taking a chance. Safest bet is to take them to reputable shop to have it done.

I went through the same thing with Discount Tire, I took a set of Terra Grapplers off of my son's Z-71 when he traded it in, and they charged 70 bucks to remove them and put some old tires we had laying around back on. Went to put them on my SD and they wanted 250. they said they charge by tire size, so I had them look it up the in the computer and the guy said sorry best I can do...so I ended up at one of those mexican places on Long Point for 70 (friend of a friend), but I watched them do the work and they did a good job.

Funny thing about it is that I had a damn nail go in my sidewall on Friday night so I put the spare on and then took it to discount to get a new tire and I talked to the kid at the counter and he quoted me something totally different.

He said that they would dismount my stock 20s to get the sensors out of them, order me the new bands, transfer the sensors to the new 22s and mount my 37s for about 200 bucks.

When I called before and talked to the guy i never even mentioned needing sensors swapped or anything else. I just told them that I needed to drop off some 22s and 37s and what would the price be.

For 200 bucks to swap sensors, get the new bands and then remount the stocks and moutn the new wheels and tires, i can see that being more reasonable.
