    Where to get tires mounted, Seattle and north

    Anyone know of a good shop to mount tires on wheels? I'm looking for one in Seattle and north to Bellingham. I hear Tight 'n' Tidy in Renton is nice but I just don't have the time to travel a full day (I live in Anacortes).

    I could go to my local Les Schwab but these are freshly restored wheels from Al Reed and don't want to take the chance. Thanks,

    Nate

    Discount Tire actually does a good job. I've been using Gerber Motorsport and Group 2 lately.
    Elvis has left the building.

    I like Discount also. For my Subaru. Might want to check with Monty at Redmond European or Chris' German (Bellevue) for a recommendation. Good shops and they know their stuff.

    Discount Tire in Bellevue does a great job.

    I would not recommend that you take your car to True Line in Bellevue under any circumstances.

    Thanks for the tips. I honestly got impatient (plus ran out of time) and decided to go to Les Schwab on a Saturday morning before I left town for a month. I asked who would be doing the work, handed the guy $20 and explained the situation. He did a great job. A little squeeze goes a long way.
