Average cost for installing tires

I'm going to replace both tires on my 95 aspencade for the first time. I was thinking of buying E3's off the internet ($300) and having a dealer install. I can remember from my 1200 that it is not cheep. I know there is a good bit of labor time involved.Can you give me an average price or hours required for front and rear tire install.Thanks

lunger, most places have both on bike and off bike pricing for tires, call and ask. When I had tires put on, my bike was already in for some warranty service, bought E3 tires from the dealer and had them installed while the bike was on the lift. Total cost was $532

I just had my local Honda dealer mount a set of E3s on my 1200. Bought the tires from them and total cost (including tires) to remove wheels from bike, mount, balance and new valve stems was $412.63.

Thanks for the replies. the last time I had tires put on my 1200. I also had some other work done so I can't remember (thats happening more and more) exactly how much I paid. But I was thinking the installation cost more than the tires. About $800 for Bridgestones and the install. I also believe they would not quote me a price and charged by the hour. Maybe I'll shop around a little. thanks again

RE:Average cost for installing tires

Hi ! for every one well I would say what you paid is about average. A tire rotation is about $50 or so give or take ten dollars, a battery could run as high as $90 or more depending on where you purchased it and the window is the high dollar item here and could be as high as $200. Then the labor to perform the tasks, so $450 is actually probably a good deal. You just go near garage and do barging about charges to fit both tire. I think you like me idea

Well, I must admit I'm somewhat confused by this post. I've never had the tires rotated on my Wing nor have I had to have work done on the window. That said, however, Welcome to the forum Finklea from the Keystone state.

I believe I paid 75.00 for Rear Tire replacement and Balance and 25.00 for Front Tire Replacement and Balance here in Texas. I paid 150.00 each for Dunlop Elite 3's. I have seen them on the web for 125.00 w/ free shipping but decided to Support my local Tire Installer and also, should I have a Failure under Warranty, I could simply go back to the local guy and get it adjusted. Another reason I considered the local guy was I can make sure of the DOM (Date of Manufacture) on the tire itself, be careful as sometimes the online folks will send you a tire that has been on the shelf over a year, so paying a little more for someone local could be well worth it. Just my Opinion....
