tire

Does $210 sound like a good deal for a tire and install? Does anyone know of any good places or deals around here?

that sounds terrible for a tire and install. i normally get my tires on ebay for around 100 bucks a piece, and i take it to pretty much any shop and they put it on for 20 or 30 bucks.

Would you replace the alternator in your car if it went bad?
Or do the brakes on your car when they need it?

If yes... its easy.... if no... dont attempt it.

Oh... do you mean tire... or wheel?

If you can get the wheel off... thats the hard part. Then get in touch with Nick... and have a couple bucks... and you are all good with getting the tire off and on the rim!
