How Much to Change Tires

My buddy recently got his tires changed (dunlop 207rr btw) on his f4, but the place he went to change it cost him at least 100 bucks, tire prices, front and back, not included. So is 100 bucks for labor to change tires seem too much or am I the only one?

That is way too much for mounting tires. I called a bunch of shops in my area and ended up paying $65 to have tires mounted that I bought on the internet. One shop quoted me $125....HOLY S*&T!!!! They must think they are the only ones who do it. Did your friend buy the tires at the shop and still have to pay that much?? That proce is high no matter what, but he got bent over double time if he bought the tires at the same shop that charged him $100 to mount them.

What a rip off... I paid $20 per tire bringing them in loose. They wanted another $20 per tire if I left them on the bike. For the price of a stand which I use for all kinds of other stuff it was well worth it. Be sure to shop around your shops, around here it was $20-$40/per tire.

did the shop make any money on the tires? you didn't get screwed if you got the tires dirt cheap. you gotta look at the TOTAL. one shop in my area will mount tires free, but they charge more for the tires. FREE mounting does not mean you are getting a sweet deal.

I paid $108.00 for front & rear mounting, on the bike. It was going to be $75.00 off the bike. All the shops in the area were close on price. I got my BT010's from on-line for $179.00/pair, delivered so it wasn't a bad deal.

$11.95 if you buy the tire from cycle gear & they do not take the wheel off the bike, you bring it in.
$20.95 if you bring in your own tire from some other place/internet. Again they do not take the wheel off the bike, you bring it in.

He bought the tires from them AND STILL had to pay an additional $100 for them to change them?

For less than a hundred bucks he could buy all the tools necessary to change them himself. It's so easy to do...
