When I got tires at Pick-a-Part, they mounted them for $10 each and balanced for $5 each.

Dunno if you really save enough to make it worth the drive to Chilliwack though...

Most places will charge $20/tire to mount and balance. You know, you could've just picked up a Yellow Pages and started calling people...

That's how much I've been paying

Maybe give PTU auto service a call
160-2268 No. 5 Rd Richmond, BC V6X 2T1
(604) 247-0800

Word is they do it for $10/tire

^My gf is like that too haha, hell I used to be like that too when I was young. You can always try e-mailing them? Or have a friend call for you.

Or just man up and call them yourself, over time you'll get the hang of it.

What the hell did you guys do before the internet? How do you buy stuff at the mall?

The best deals are made face to face.

Call shop.
Hi, how are you doing?
I have a set of xx" tires, on steelies, that are off the car and I'm wondering how much you guys charge to balance them.
OK thanks, I'll give you a call back to arrange a time to come in.

Seriously, I can't believe this is actually a thread. Pick up the phone or just drive to your local tire shop and ask them to balance. No shop should charge more than $5-$7 for steelies balancing with tires already mounted.
