My uncle has a shop, where i work part time.
Only thing its in King City.....A little north of Canada's wonderland.
Its on keele st north of major mac.

Unless they are 18s or very low 17s.
I'll get him to mount the tires for $10/wheel.
And ur gonna need to balance them which is another $10/wheel.

So $20/wheel....maybe cheaper but i can't promise.

Let me know if ur interested.

Really? Take it to another Canadian Tire. Maybe the one where you went to were idiots. How hard is it to mount tires on a rim and put them on a car? Itz a simple job for these guyz. If you still don't want to go to another Canadian Tire then just go to any Garage in your area. They will do it for you. Itz just mounting tires. No biggie.

if i had the machine i;d do it for u...cuz i do them all period in autoshop..its very simple.

and mitch..doing it proper is a biggie, if u got some ignorant idiot who doesnt pay attention to wat hes doing..ur tires are gone. trust me. i've seen ppl in my class lookin around and mounting tires..and got them ripped to pieces! plus some shops dont do the proper procedure or know how to work on nicely finished rims...

Of course mounting a tire onto a rims should be done properly. The kids in your class are just learning how to do it, therefor they are not taking the proper procedures. The mechanics at Canadian Tire have done this numerous times. The one by my house is a new one and they have a huge window to see into the bays. I see them mounting tires onto rims perfectly fine. They're not dazed and confused while doing it.

Whatz so hard about it?

1. Get the tire onto the rim properly.
2. Fill up the tire to itz proper PSI.
3. (Get alignment if you want to spend the $)
4. Put rims onto the car.

DONE!! lol

If it was something not so simple to do then I wouldn't take it there.

I think it IS important to get a good shop that knows how to mount and seal the tires properly onto your rims. Especially without scratching your aftermarket rims. Some shops can be careless and just dump your rims/tires on the ground while doing the job. If you're not concerened about your winters on steelies then use CT by all means.

No problem sorry i couldn't help....
$158 is alot, but its BMW so i'd expect that....


And in response to all the other guys talkin about mounting tires....You forgot to mention you need to properly clean the rim bcus there is always corrosion around the rim......some shops dont do this bcus it takes more time. But if its not done properly it will start to leak around the rim.

Also there is this rubber sealer you apply around the rim where the tire sits with a small paint brush. My uncle uses this stuff, its kinda expensive.....but this way we garantee it wont leak around the rim or we'll fix it
