You sure they do it for $20 only? They charge me $30 per wheel

I heard they send out the wheel to have someone do it for them.

just got one tire installed at garage5. for $20+tax they unmounted the 17" tire then installed it onto another rim + balanced it. IMO, the service was very good as usual. i tend to ask a lot of questions and they always respond w/out sugar-coating the answers.

note that tire installs aren't actually done by garage5. they contract it out to a third party that has a touchless machine. i have a feeling i know where they're sending the tires to but i won't start any rumors on here. i'd rather deal w/ garage5 anyways.

One of the RS sponsors, Drivehard Performance has their own machine. I went there today and swapped my winters for my all-seasons. Prices were good and service was fast despite a busy Friday afternoon rush.

Nope!

Mind you, these are 14" OEM BMW Wheels. But nonetheless, it was as good as before and after.

I paid $10/wheel which is freakin' cheap. But again, this was due in part of my wheels being stock OEM 14"ers. If you have a different size, I suggest calling or PM'ing them and speaking to David to get a better quote.
