  • Seasonal Tire Changing and Storage

    Condo living and Kal Tire has quoted 50/tire changeover (same rims) and $120/season storage...so $640/year. Is this the going rate?

    Not sure where you live but Wheel Wizards in Hamilton are a bunch cheaper. I don't think I pay 300 which includes all year storage and the change per season.

    They might be getting a bit out of this business.

      wow that's expensive! I did a quote online at kaltire and it isn't as expensive as you mention above although more than I expected. I'm really glad I did my own tires this year and lucky enough to be able to store the tires at my parents garage

      edit: you should look at maybe buying a cheap set of rims and calculating your breakeven since you'll save money on the tire changeovers every season

        That seems expensive.

        My storage is $80 + $50 change over for all 4 wheels at a Honda dealership. Twice a year and that works out to be $260 + tax per year.

          Local mechanic charges 100 per year for storage and 30 per seasonal swap.

            I pay about $40 to swap wheels (on rims), and about $100-$120 for storage. One day Iíll install heavy duty racks in the garage as this should pay for itself.

              When you have no room to store your tires, convince should figure in the cost somewhere imo.

                I pay $40 to swap tires. Have separate rims for winters. Itís $80 if you donít. $200 is silly

                  I used to store my own rims during the off season. But I found it heavy work, and when we got rid of our mini van I could no longer carry all 8 in one vehicle when it came time to do the swap over.

                  I find the $ well worth the convenience.

                    I have my winter tires on a set of plain black steel rims. The summers stay on the regular rims. The place I use charges $25.00 per tire when changed (includes balancing each time). And then $60.00 to store them for the season. Well worth not having to worry about changing and storing them myself.

                      My experience has been that Kal Tire is the most expensive for everything.

                      I'd shop around and see if you can't find a better rate.

                      16 degree Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 / Fujikura Speeder 865
                      20 degree Ping Rapture V2 Hybrid / MR JavlinFX
                      4-AW Nike Vapor Pro Combo / DG Pro

                      54, 58 degree Ping Glide / CFS
                      Ping Anser Redwood

                        Depends on what type of wheels OP has, if its exotic or huge size wheels, then the cost will be higher but still $50 per wheel sounds excessive (unless talking about $50 per year so 2 swaps ?)

                        Going rate is $100-150 for storage and tire swap (installation and balancing) is about $20 per tire (18" rim). Smaller size cheaper and vice versa

                          I go to my local guy, Viselco Ltd, for ~$100 a season. ~$200 total/year.

                            If you are friends with someone who has the tools for changing tires and usually does their own, would ask them if they wouldn't mind adding yours to the list. Let them know a case of beer is waiting for them at the end! Usually gets the trick done in most cases

                              $50.00 per wheel is outrageous. I get all four done for $45.00 and seasonal storage for $98 at a Tire Craft in Richmond Hill. So about $300.00 per year. https://richmond-hill.cdncompanies.c...richmond-hill/

                              I used to do my own wheel storage but when we got an SUV, I found lifting the heavier tires onto a raised storage shelf very difficult. Put my back out at the beginning of golf season.

                              Not doing that again!!!!
