Default Is $120 too much to pay for mount/balance of rear tires?

My local Chevy dealership quoted me $120 :eek: bucks to mount and balance my new rear tires (I'm prob. going w/ Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's). Is this about right on price or are they charging too much. If so, does anyone know of anywhere in NW Arkansas that can mount/balance Vette tires. Thanks.

Yes!

I got all four wheels removed, the tires taken off and mounted on 4 new wheels, balanced and reinstalled for $79.00.

Unfortunately, I am in NC so that doesn't help you.

Thanks everyone...I guess from the prices you guys are quoting, I might be better off getting it done in the nearest large city. :seeya

PS: Make sure that whoever does this have handled tires of this size and know about sensors.

May be worth a few extra bucks if you have really nice wheels.

Thats exactly what I paid in Atlanta. They also swapped my tire pressure sensors. See if you can find a Discount Tire place near you.

I got my Z06 four wheels removed, the Goodyear Supercar tires taken off and mounted on 4 new wheels, balanced, reinstalled and tire sensors for $80.00 at Firestone. They did it a about 30 minutes. I think firestone dealers can use the money these days.
