yeah call around and see what you can find. i had mine done recently when i got my new tires mounted at a place called tire works.
they would've charged me 80 for the alignment alone. but since i also got my wheels done, fluids topped off etc, they only charged 50 for the alignment. so maybe if you tell them you need otehr things done as well they'll charge ya less
Might have to try out that lifetime alignment from firestone. I think Ive got the mount and balance taken care of pretty cheaply. I found a friend with an offroad shop that does that so he'll cut me some slack on that. Anybody know the price on firestones lifetime alignment deal?
The tire shop I go to here charged me $20 a tire to swap wheels and get the stick on weights (for some reason they are more expensive). They include the mount and balance when ever you buy tires from them so I dont know exactly how much that is. Then its $49.95 for a 2 wheel alignment and $59.95 for a 4 wheel.
Hmm... never thought of them including mount and balance if I order from them. Think i'd be better off to have the tires delivered to my house or just order them from a shop? I guess prices will kinda determine that.
if your going to get the terra grapplers like you said try discount tire they have them for a real good price, i had a local shop get me some 285's for 600 mounted and balanced, find a reputable alignment shop man its worth it, call the off road places and see where they send there trucks when they lift them, ive had the chain type places do it and well it was ok but i could tell it was still alittle off, ended up finding a private type place that did a better job, took me out there to show me what was up and it was only 60 bucks, tires getting mounted well that really all depends on tire size and the people that are doing it
Check out Costco. Its $15 per tire for mount and balance, lifetime balance and rotation, free flat repairs, road hazard warranty (which covers ALL damage except accidents and vandalism). Even if you have to buy a membership it will still be cheaper then most places. They will be having another $70 off sale coming up in July or early August.
I got mine done at Wal-mart because I bought the tires online. It was $52 for mounting balancing, lifetime rotation and balance, and disposal. Im not too happy with their service though and they ended up refunding the money I paid for the lifetime rotate and balance.
Tires plus its $59 for an alignment, $119 for 3 years unlimited alignment, and $159 for lifetime alignment. Im not too happy with their service though.
If you have never had an alignment before you will need to have the cams installed. IF they do it they will charge you alot. If you have some basic skills and tools you can do it at home. Let me know if you need help with it.

That costco deal sounds pretty good as well. Plus my parents already have a membership there. Im kinda impatient though so I may just have to go get the old crappy wranglers put on the new wheels until I can get the new tires. Need to get a tuner and then tires.
