Tire balancing mounting in GTA

Any recommendations on a shop with experience mounting AND balancing 37" tires in the GTA. I don't want hammer on weights as I prefer stick on.

Let me know.

2001 F350 CC SWB 6spd....currently getting a complete 'makeover'. Stay tuned.

Wheel Wizzards in Hamilton do a good job and they use stick on weights.

Called them. Unless I buy the tires and wheels there, they wont do it.

So you can mount/balance my tires and MAKE MONEY or you say 'NO we wont do it' and I take my money elsewhere. Great business model.

LAME.

Are businesses in the GTA making too much $$ to not care?

Must be eh?

That's horrible customer service in my mind. They will never get any of my business and I will let anyone who cares know it.

Too bad I can't email them a link to this thread.

I have heard that Tires23 in Mississauga is good to deal with. Not sure what kind of weights they use however.

If the 37 inch tires can fit a Hunter Road Force balancing machine, I would probably go with this balancing....I have had past issues balancing my BFG AT T/A KO tires on my former truck. Hunter RF balancing costs more.
