How about a local shop (or person) who is inexpensive, or othererwise recommended for mounting and balancing? Thanks guys.

Action Tire Services
12520 110 Ave Surrey, BC V3V 3J8
(604) 580-1766

Used tires, wheels, mounting & balancing.
Remove, balance & installed 4 wheels was $60
Never made appointments, but usually they can fix you up in about 1/2 hr.
They have repaired a couple of flats, free for me also.
Checking thru their stock I did buy a decent set of original 2L wheels there once ($140)

    In Kelowna, I am at  M. & T. Northside Services, 101-1021 Ellis Street.  Ph: 250-763-4006.

   We were rated #1 for customer service by Okanagan Life magazine.  We are VW friendly shop that can look after all of your automotive needs, including mounting and balancing your tires.  However at this time, the stock wide fives we cannot balance. I am working on it though.

    Gordo.  The other Gordo.

      Well, Cancel all that... After 15 years of working at M&T I have given my notice.  As of June 2nd I will be working at Williams Automotive on the corner of Benvoulin and KLO.  It is a Family run shop that has been around for more than forty years.  I look forward to meeting the new customers and hope that many of my customers will find me there.  And , Yes we do tires there too.
