what's the best price to get winter tires installed?

Just wondering where the best place is to get my 19" winter tires installed in the GTA. I'm just using the stock rims; taking the PS2s off and mounting/balancing winter tires. Any ideas on cost? I called a couple dealers and got different answers! You would think this would be a straightforward, standardized thing, but each dealer has given me a different price, ranging from $200 to $350!

Not sure where you are located, but I recently paid about $80 to have tires mounted and balanced - included taking off the existing tires at Jensen Tire in Oakville.

I'm in oakville. Any concerns about an independent shop damaging the rims during the mounting/balancing process? That's why I thought I would just take it to the dealer. I'll try that Jenson Tire place, assuming you didn't have any problems? Also open to any other suggestions?

Zero problems at Jensen - Have been there a number of times - they will fill with nitrogen too.

I use Tirecraft/Megawheelz on the Queensway near Sherway mall for many years.
Never had any issues.

Go to Allan at simplytire on chesswood. He has never scratched my wheels and he will be cheaper then the prices you have been quoted.
