Are you factoring in transportation costs....?
EMS does a good job for a nice price. Bummer is, they're quite a ways from Chilli...

Valley Yamaha in the 'Wack there is pretty good. Decent price last time I was in there, and no scratches

WTB: PW50 Bike for my kids
TR: Not sure if they'd charge more if you didn't or don't get the tires through them but, Big Top in the 'wack charged me about $40 to mount and balance my front tire when I brought the rim in - granted, I also purchased my tire from them.
"All great art is made of suffering, as are we"
Bayside did a great job for me. Fast, good and economical, and no penalties for not having bought the tires from them. Wheels were off the bike, btw.
I will NEVER go to Bayside and would recommend that you don't either!!!
Took them the two rims, tires and tubes off of my DRZ. Asked THREE (3) times if they could be changed that day as it was kinda important and would have taken it elsewhere if they said no . Arrived back at Bayside at 5:45pm just to be told that it would not get done! Of course there was no way I could take it anywhere else at that point. Got given many apologies and was told that they would do it free of charge the next day. Seemed like an okay deal and what else was I going to do at 6pm?
Called them the next day at 11:00am, they said it will be done by noon. Called them again at 12:45pm to see if I could come and pick up my tires. They said they have tried to install the front tire but could not get it to beed? WTF?????
So I go down to get my tires and they have not even attempted to put the rear tire on! I them asked why they did not do the rear and Kevin shouts out from behind his computer, "That will cost you a minimum of two hours labour!"
SO not only did they not do what they were supposed to the day they told me THREE times (Kevin was one of those who told me it would be done!) it would be done, they now wanted to charge me two hours labour for what they quoted me $25.00 a wheel - all because they did not have the ability to install two tires, what kind of motorcycle mechanic shop can't install a tire?!?!?
Took it to EMS and had it on the same day.
Go to EMS, they ROCK!
Yeah, of course it was my fault, I forgot to bring my torque wrench!
