Does anyone besides myself think that mount and balance charges have gone crazy? I recently bought a set of coopers for my diesel pickup (really nice, by the way)and a pair for my old camaro (long story), at a large department store, i won't name (but it rhymes with mal wart). Seven hundred thirty dollars or so. It cost another hundred and thirty bucks to get them on the car, would have been$150 if i had bought road hazard for the camaro. Is it just me, or has this kind of thing gotten out of hand? I had a pair of 12x15 brand new rims, that i wanted some brand new drag radials put on, so i took them to a local tire shop that sponsors a race series at our local half-mile roundy-round, figuring they knew what they were doing. M&b, less than ten minutes work, $40. I wish i could make $240/hr! I even have a pair of $50 each tires, that now will fit the car i want to put them on. I've got $330 into them so far, and they aren't balanced yet. I'm considering buying a cheap manual tire changer and balancer, and seeing if i can do something about this. I have too many old tires that need changing.
