So I need new tires. Buddy works for a tire manufacturer. He gets huge discount from Tire Rack.

He buys them. I pay him. Tires arrive. I have to get them mounted and balanced.

Any of you been down this road? Did the shop doing the work welcome you with open arms to mount/balance the tires?

Thanks.

We will mount and balance anything u bring in most shops will. but there's no warranty or road hazard.

also check the date codes on tires we had a guy bring some brand new ten year old tire to be mounted. he got them on line not sure where though. the date code is a 4 digit number stamped into the tire should read 4918 which the first 2 digits is week of the year they were built second is the year so that code is 49th week of 2018.

I have done it a few times, last time my local independant tire shop was able to price match (including freight) Tire Rack has a feature to ship to a local chop so you just go get them mounted.
