    Called the local tire dealer.

    To mount, balance and move my sensors from my factory rims to the new rims and tires, and do a front end alignment

    $227

    Is that a rip off?

    Not no bad to me. Moving the sensors is probably most of that since it doesn't sound that easy, but a I'm not sure about that.

    I may call Roswell or Hobbs. I mean if it's a $25 -$30 difference I won't drive. but if it's a $100..that's a different story!

    4x4 alignment can run up to $100. Break down your old wheels and carefully take out your tpms without damaging them. Then install into new wheels and mount tires and balance. Sounds fair to me. A little on the high side but not outrageous!

    I am getting 4 tires installed and an alignment tomorrow by a local shop. No TPMS swap though. I will post the cost tomorrow.

    The dealer will charge around $89.99 for a front end alignment on a 4x4. ^^^$50 is cheap! I've not found any place that would do it that cheap. Best i could find is $69.99?

    Shitty Cell pics. '


    Mount and Balance was $14.95 per tire @ 4 tires = $59.80
    Thrust alignment = $39.95
    Tax = $5.99


    Grand total: $105.74

    They didn't charge me for my old tires like they used to do. Maybe they forgot. :notsure:
