Tire Mounting/ Install cost and recommendation in greater LA area?

How much does everyone pay to:

1) get tires removed
2) mount and balance a wheel
3) drill a hole into aftermarket wheel to fit damn TPMS sensor

I going through my fourth set of wheels and the cost of mounting/dismounting is starting to rack up. Curious to find out if I'm over paying.

Please list price and recommended shop, thx!

Curious as well. I feel like I am overpaying too.

BTW- for the tpms sensor, doesn't it go right behind the valve stem?

oem bmw tpms does not fit in most aftermarket wheel valve stem holes. i heard there are converter kits but i have yet to see it.

most people drill another hole in the inner barrel to fit the tpms (i'm about to do the same to this set of wheels i just got). i measured it tonight and its 0.5" diameter hole. most people say credible rim shops should be able to do it for you.

i pay $10 to dismount and $15 to mount & balance 20". but they leave hair-line scratches on my rims from time to time, like today (pissed).
