    What's a reasonable price for mounting and balancing.

    So far the cheapest quote i got for my 225/60/16s was 66 dollars.

    Everyone else is quoting 80ish.

    When I put the 275s/315s on the Camaro a couple years back it was 40 dollars

    Ditto, used to be about $40 here, but they now charge a $1 per inch of the wheel, so 18s run $72. Ridiculous

    Yea I know, it's the companies trying to make an extra buck here and there, i guess this is how business works in a democratic majority.

    Per inch? Oh come on! Like it takes more time or effort to lift an 18 inch wheel than a 17. That is utterly and completely pathetic. The dick that thought this up needs an ass whuppin. But like all industries, once one company does it, sooner or later they all will...

    I would never do business with a shop so shady they charge by the inch especially since my 22's on my trailblazer and 18's on my TA I'd go broke.I paid $15 per on my car and suv no per inch charge.

    Hibdons in Tulsa. They have a good reputation, but I agree, its b/s.
