Tire install in Orlando??

Anybody have any recommendations on a local shop to mount and balance tires? Just purchased a set online and they are coming next week. Rear tires will have a slight stretch on them...nothing too crazy at all though. 275 on a 20x10 tire.

I went to discount tire on Alafaya right past lake under hill....a little expensive but they were fast. $90 for mount and balance of the rears.

Hope they didn't fuck up the bead on your tires! Roadrunner did that to my tires, twice.

swung by there this morning. They took them off to double check everything. Turns out the tires and valve stems are fine. It's the seal on my 3-piece wheels. He showed me where it was leaking.

Now, I have to bring it to a repair shop. They recommended Olympits Rims Repair & Machine Shop also on Forsyth. anyone have any experience with them?

Bent Rim Repair curbed the shit out of my SSRs when mounting the tires.

Action Gator on 17-92 and 436 can do 19s and road force balance. Not all shops will do 19s and not all shops have the Hunter(?) road force balancing machine. That's what I look for in a shop. They'll also give you road hazard insurance on new tires.

I have had all my wheels in the past repaired by them. I had a set of Dinan wheels on my old E46 M3 that were trashed from the previous owner and Olympits made them look brand new again for a great price!

Hint: Call ahead for a price and when you show up if you end up talking to someone else they might give you a lower price without asking if you got a quote before hand.
