Tire Balance Auto Shop Help near Rockville, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Damascus, MD

Hey Guys,
My new wheels/tires are here and I need to have them weighted (sry if that's the incorrect term)

i have 265/30/19s and 295/30/19s and can only find one shop in my area with a balance machine that will supposedly handle my set-up.

I live in Damascus, MD which is very close to Rockville, Gaithersburg and or Frederick MD.

The only place I found so far is a NTB in Germantown and they want to charge me $40 per wheel to balance which I feel is too high.

Any help or recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance,
Steven

Personally, I'd go somewhere with a Hunter Roadforce machine nearby. There are several, shown on the locator tool here:

I could recommend Radial Tire in Silver spring.

$40 a piece is not too much considering you're putting low profile tires on the car. The tires are much more difficult to mount than something like the garden-variety Camry's.

I would use a shop with a good reputation.... you get what you pay for.
