Tire mount & balance deal ?

I'm a fairly old school father, but I need to get tires mounted and balanced for some 18's. Wonder if there's any shops out there that would do a good job without dinging me all these misc fees (shop fees, valve fee, tpms fees, low profile fees, etc) any input ?

I know keywords: volco, dales, advance

I've had good experiences with the Big-O Tire on Kingsway in Vancouver. A few other members here have taken their car there with positive results. I've been a return customer for several years and I appreciate their no-nonsense approach to their work and pricing.

They scratched my SSR Viennas, and didn't balance them correctly. Thier machine isn't calibrated properly at all.

Went elsewhere, and the balance was waaaaay off. Don ended up taking most of the weights off.

speed syndicate was able to stretch my 245/40s on a brand new 10.5 when 2 other shops couldn't. Reasonably priced too.
