Changing tires for free?

Is there any tire shop that would give you free tire install if you purchased the tires from them? Please let me know if you know any

I'm sure that 99% of the time it would still be cheaper to buy the tires on tire rack and have someone else install them for you. I had a small shop mount and balance my 19" tires for 25 each I believe. But they did a great job and didn't even put one scuff on the rims, most shops I called wouldn't even touch them because of the low profile tires.

yup tirerack is a good place to get it from, I wouldn;t trust those small shops to mount the wheels/tires.

You'd be surprised, most specialty shops are accustomed to mounting the shorter sidewalled tires where as BJ, Costco, Sears and the like don't deal with that everyday and often times it can lead to problems!!
