    Default retread mounting



    Where am I suppose to go to get my spare retread mounted because discount tire in Lafayette told me they wouldn't mount it for me. The guy then went on to tell me I got jibbed on the tire.

    Your hole in the wall shops are you best bet. Most Big Tire Stores wont mount them for liability issues.

    I agree - a small local shop is my recommendation.

    Alpine Tire in Fort Collins is my go-to place, though a tad of a drive for you.

    Longmont Tire Service just north of the RR tracks on 287, East side of the street. They did mine. They sell used tires and I swapped my old ones for the mount and balance. No cash.

    I have tire irons if anyone wishes.

    I mount/dismount my 35/12.5/15's - but the balance is the issue.

    If you want to stop up, we can mount it. Alpine Tire charges $10 for balance. (edit - heck, they'd probably charge $10 to mount and balance - but I can't speak for them)

    I've run TreadWrights for a number of years now. I always take mine to Wal-Mart. The technicians always ask about where I got them, but have no issues mounting them for me. Around $50 for five tires with lifetime balance.
