I'd say a $100 to mount the tires is bogus.JCCC said:I'm being quoted 335.00-450.00 for front and rear roadtec z6 tires that's including bringing in the bike and mounting and balancing what is everyone paying for the same package?
I also was going to the on line route but everyone in my area charges between 50.00-65.00 to mt. and balance and some won't do it at all unless you buy the tires from them.AvidSV650Rider said:I'd say a $100 to mount the tires is bogus.
You can get the tires for just over $200: http://arizonamoto.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=SWMT&Category_Code=Z6
Where are you? Maybe some people in your area know where you can get one mounted cheaper.JCCC said:I also was going to the on line route but everyone in my area charges between 50.00-65.00 to mt. and balance and some won't do it at all unless you buy the tires from them.
That's where I would have likely bought mine if I was getting a pair together. However, I just bought the rear. After shipping was factored in, it was cheaper to pay a little more for the tire and get it from my local guy. FWIW, the price for just the tire was $119, about $10 more that SWMOTO, but if you only buy one tire, they charge $15 shipping, so it was just about a wash.kevinb120 said:Oh from SWMOTOTIRES it was $204 for the tires shipped(120/160 60's). It was still cheaper then what the shop charges if you order the tires from them.
$120? Wow! The labor rates must be high where you live. So you're talking $350 to get new tires.kevinb120 said:I pay the local shop about 120 bucks to mount mine, drop it off, come back later.
