$190 to install tires??

So I had a set of tires put on the bike today. Does $190 to pull both front and back wheels install tires and reinstall wheels sound high?

typically $50 for the rear and $25-$30 for the front.
That sucks you had to pay that much yo..
next time shop around, $100 cheaper would be well worth the
drive to another shop a little further away.

wow. post a pic of that receipt. Maybe they charged you for something else. That amount is about 3 hours of labor depending on their rate.

Typically a dealership charges base labor of like 85 an hour and they quote the job on a base hour estimate from a book which is generally 2 hours if they have to take the wheels off. So yes its high but a common price with most dealerships for that labor.
