    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?

    $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!!!!

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

    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

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

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