Hey guys! I just purchased some 32" tires from discounttiredirect.com along with black cragar D windows to put on the TJ and I wanted to know if anyone knew of any places in the Gables/Miami/Kendall area that they would recommend to have them balanced and installed. I know there are a several places further north in the Ft.lauderdale area but i was hoping to not have to make the drive. I will if need be...Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, the tires and wheels are being shipped separately. Not sure how much of a difference that makes.

Thanks! :cool:

maybe alittle too far North but I have used Tire Country in Pompano and they really did a good job and have the bigger install, balance tooling to do it right without F-n up the rims and the do alignments on lifted trucks. There is usually 5 monster lift Jeeps and truck parked out front so you know they get this kind of business.

I've always taken my tires and rims to the Martino Tire off of Miller and 137th. I drop them off and wait for the call to pick them up. Never had any issues. Becuase i install the set at home myself its real cheap. I think the last time i was told to give the tire guy $40 cash to mount and balance the set of four 35x12.50r15s.

Trailblazer: That does sounds like a really good deal. Any idea how much they would charge to have the tires put on the wheels?

Don't know. Never actually done that.:)

I think the going rate at most places (because you're not buying it from them) is like $20 per tire/rim. The good thing is that with tire that size you should be able to take it anyplace.
