Is there anyone out there from the Champaign, IL Mattoon, IL or Terre Haute, IN area that has a tire changer to change tires? Dealers want an ungodly amount to mount tires. (around $60 if you just bring in the the rims) I was just trying to find a private individual that could do that and make a little money at it. Thanks.

Mounting them is not usually the problem, it's getting them balanced. Try going to a regular tire shop, sometimes they will mount them for you. A friend and I are thinking about going 50/50 on a balancer, but I'm about 2 hrs south of you so it wouldn't be worth the drive really.

You can balance the wheels/tires on the axle between two jack stands or something similar. Mounting is a b***** pain IMO. $60 for both is not a bad price.
