$22.50 ea, when I brought them in, off the bike

If the tires are on the bike it costs a lot more (shop rate $70/hr)

BTW...If its a spoked wheel you likely need new inner tubes/liner as well +$$
I will be needing new tires in about 2/3K miles and looking at getting the Avon. Last two sets have been Metzler. I would be interested in your results with the Avon. Please let me know how they handle and how the wear is going, thanks.

$65 per tire if you buy tires from someplace other than them (i.e. HDL) $40 per tire if you buy from them. They have no deals on tire prices full retail at those prices they should mount for free IMHO

Took my back tire and wheel down to new Honda dealer in Gastonia, Extreme Motorsports. Guy charged me $17.00 to mount the new tire, bought elsewhere. I saw a sign on the wall said Labor Rate $65.00 an hour, know it took them 40 minutes to do the job. Doing the front next weekend. Guess where I will go?

Bingo Kevin, a friend has a harbor freight tire changer we us it all the time takes about 15 min to do a set. Get two or three guys to pitch in and it is a $35.00 one time shot forever.
