My 09 Civic is past due for new tires so I've started looking. I know people recommend Tire Rack but after paying for shipping and then for a shop to put them on is it really that much cheaper? And what's a ballpark figure as far as having them installed goes? One place I looked charged $44 for "computerized wheel balance", $28 for "TPMS Valve Service Kit", $12 for "TPMS Valve Service Kit Labor", $2 Environmental Fee and $8 Recycling Charge. That's with me buying the tires from them. Are those legit charges?
Just got my wife's car done with a Buy 3 get 1 Free from Firestone with their Champion Tires. It was $400 when all was said and done for the tires. Did alignment as well while it was there (probably a mistake) but that made it $492 total.
