Cheap place to get tire rims swapped?

I have two tires in the back of my car both on rims. I just need to get the rims off both tires, swap them, and only mount one rim back on and have it balanced. They are just regular rims and tires. Every place i call has quoted me $30-$40 which seems a bit steep. Anyone have any suggestions for Naperville/Aurora area? I have tried Firestone, Pep Boys, Acorn Goodyear, clarks car care, Discount Tire, Cosco, and Sears.

UHH OHH you hide his bike again so you can put those pink rims on it

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Eva, that sounds about right because they are looking at two steps here. Pulling the tires off, and then re-mounting the good one on the other rim (if I followed you correctly). They figure $15 for each step.

Since you didn't buy the tires from them, they are going to make sure they get the money for their time.

$30 to swap a set of car tires is reasonable

Oh!!! they are car rims. Nevermind. LOL!!

This is a motorcycle website so I immediately thought motorcycle tires and rims and didn't read the entire post.

I still do it if I have the free time. Started working full time again and free time is getting harder to come by. Mostly I do it weekend mornings or on my days off.
