Game i've been going to Arandas Tires & Rims in Wicker Park for years. You can watch while they mount/fix etc your wheel. Just tell them you are gonna leave a fat tip and they will take care of you
lol can I lie about the tip? Do you remember how much they charge for mounting/balancing and TPMS?

I've used fluid to swap out my tires for winter/summer the past couple of years, no problems. Tell them I sent you.

Fluid Motor Union in Plainfield? I'll give them a call. Thanks Gary.

Have you gotten any paint work done with them? They did a good job with my wheels and quoted me $250 to paint a bumper rather than $300 and a long ride to A&L.
