New dunlop for the 06 RK custom was $163 installed, with only a 1 hour wait at Surdykes HD. I absolutly HATE that dealership, but no one in St. Louis can touch them on tire prices.

On my FXRS, I buy the tires over the internet, take the wheels off myself, and have the new ones mounted & balanced at the Yamaha shop. $25 each.

The new FLHTC looks like a much bigger pain in the *** to get the wheels off. When it comes new tire time I may have to formulate a new plan.

Default RE: Reasonable cost of a rear tire install?

Thanks for the feedback folks.

I know I can get the tire cheaper on-line. And I didn't expect to buy one, and bring it to this shop and have them mount/install it. To me, knowing how much I HATE wrenching, it's far less stressfull to pay the 125.00 dollar or so differenceand have this shop do it. If they say it takes 3/4 of an hour to remove, mount, install the rear tire, it would take me 4 or 5 hours (having never done it myself) I'm sure. Read the manual, figure out how to take it all apart on a Ultra Glide, jump in the cage to have the tire mounted/balanced somewhere.Then put it all on. Not to mention the swearing, yelling, aggravation, cut knuckles... I think I'd rather be out riding ;-)

And I thought that I got a good deal on mine. Replaced rear tire with new Dunlop, replaced brake pads. $195.00. I already had the brake pads. 1/2 labor $22.50.

Default RE: Reasonable cost of a rear tire install?

I took 2 new wheels and tires (mounted) to my dealer and they charged me 1 hour labor each (72X2) to install rotors, sprocket and put em on. It took the wrench over 3 hours but they held to their estimate. I like my dealer! 144 was the total and they balanced em also!

I do my own. I get the tires shipped to me for about 120 bucks each. I enjoy doing it myself, but could get it done locally for 99 bucks plus labor. They charge 40 bucks labor if you carry the wheel in. Show your dealer this ad and ask how this dealer sells any tire for 99 bucks and why he can't do it, also.
