Question Where to get used wheels/tires mounted?

Hey guys, I'm having a very hard time trying to find a place that will mount a set of used tires to a set of used wheels. Pretty much everywhere I've called so far has told me they won't do it because of "liability issues". The only place that I've found that will do it is Discount Tire, but they are f#$%#g outrageous and quoted me $200.

The tires are 37x13.50x22 Toyo M/T and wheels are 22x10. Anyone know of a place that will do this and what a reasonable price is for this? Thanks!

Might be a longshot, but what about a tech school or high school with an auto shop?

Thanks. I thought about that as well and I will call the local community college on Monday.

I thought the same thing. No one wants to do it because they could be "liable" if something happened. They will only install new tires. What a pathetic world we live in

Try a ma pop shop or a used tire shop. We have several used tire places here in my town that will mount damn near anything. Lol

Had the same problem.. Mom and pop shop is the way to go. If you know they will fit and give no problems, tell them you don't care about any liability and just put the chit on, collect your $$, and move on.

If you see what I changed from black to red in your posting. That might be why you can't get them mounted.

37x13.50R22 and your rims are 20x10

Your rims are two inches too small unless that is a typo on your part.

Sorry, it was just a typo. My current tire/wheel combo is a 20. I have a set of used 22 wheels for these tires.
