Place that will mount used tires

Hi guys,

I bought two used tires frim a member here yesterday and I have been turned down from multiple shops because the shops do not want to deal with used tires. Well two of those place say they werent going to mount 35 profile tires.

So do any of you recommend or know of any place who will mount used tires? I guess i can call around but its like crap shoot. Im located in Malden, but i am willing to drive a bit. I also dont care about the rim getting damaged either.

Thanks in advance.

I think Liner Tire in Brookline will do it. I brought tires I bought from discount tire direct online and they installed them no problem.

Only thing is the tech seemed kinda pissed when I walked around my car looking for any damage after the install was done, but I always do that after any service...

Alewife Auto in Somerville has installed multiple sets of used tires for me in the past. George is a great guy, should have no issues doing it.
