    Yeah I've been finding the same thing, either that or they want $45-60 per tire.

    If you were near central NJ I'd tell you to bring em on over. Just mounted slicks for a customer the other day.

    Funny everybody is having issues with tire shops not wanting to mount customer-supplied tires. I bought a set of like-new wheels/tires off of a 2017 Silverado to put on my 06 burb. Got them off a guy on Craigslist. They needed to be re-balanced so I took them to Discount. Would you believe they offered me their warranty/protection plan on them? I didn't have the money or else I would have done it. Weird lol!

    Are they tubless tires by design?

    The old days shops had stacks of tires wrapped in paper that kept them preserved for years. The radials just seem to let go especially down here with the sun. The tires crack let the moisture in and rust the steel belts and pop. I had 40+ year old Sears Dyna-Glass Tires that still held air on the front of my 64 Lemans. I just had to put air in about once a year. I sold it about 3 months ago. It went up to Virginia.
