    Well, if their customer service is outstanding, they'll do it at no charge since you just bought the tires from them. But in general, and I mean just ball-park estimate, a normal tire swap and rebalance is around $15 each tire?

    Had my stock BFG's flipped out at Kauffman for $9 a wheel, but whoever you bought your tires from should flip them around for free if your not happy, IMO.

    Big O has always charged me around $45-50 for a mount and rebalance (did snow tires every year), so I would assume it would be the same for what you are doing. If you go to the place you bought them they may cut you a break.

    Post pics and a voting pole! I like white letters out, and plan on having it done when I put on my next set of tires.

    Around 15 a wheel sounds right if you get a balance...but if you the tire deal included free balancing for life of tire maybe he'll just charge you for breaking bead and remounting. Something to ask for!

    Get at them with a sharpie and avoid the cost. If the sharpie doesn't work then have them switch them

    I just got my Revo2's put on. I couldn't decide either so I went back to this forum and looked at pics of radiant red trucks and decided I wanted the white letters out. The pics actually changed my mind as initially I was going all black. They look great and I am keeping them white letters out.

    If you just bought the tires there they should have free lifetime balance and rotate if the place is worth a shit so the flippy thing should be no more than whatever they charge to mount x 4........

    Good customer service they should just swap them, but they should make you a deal. When I bought my BFGs at Tire Rack, I ordered them with no white letters so that wouldn't be a problem.

    This is what I would have said^^^ I know my tire guys would fix it grattis, but I also know I do not like letters out on anything I have :), I just dont care for the white lettering on a truck or SUV, thats just me tho.

    IMHO if you have a Sport truck and your not rock crawling, white out holds up the sporting theme and with black wheels I just think it's too much black. Included a couple of pictures to show what mine look like.
