Re: Are the stock V tires really that bad?
What does it usually cost to get new tires mounted?
Before you go and buy them online go check with your local independent shop on what they will charge to sell you tires and mount them. Then ask how much to mount what you bring in.
The small shop I go to now charges only a few $ more than what I can find tires online for. He gets them next day no charge and mounts them. If I buy online it takes longer to get the tires shipped to my house then I have to deliver the tires to him and he charges around $30 a wheel to swap. Its cheaper to buy everything from him then to shop online for me. Unless you do your own mounting. Plus I like supporting a local shop if they have fair prices.
