Tire mounting question

There is this place by my house that will mount both front and rear tires for $15 bucks w/o balance. Does balancing the tires make a difference? Or would i be better off spending the extra $50 bucks to get them mounted and balanced at cycle gear? Lemme know

yeah, true enough.
I would imagine you'd wanna get them balanced though, seems like it would be worth it.
I just dont know if it would make a difference on the phiddy.

If it is for a 50 the dont worry about it, it would be like balancing tires on your lawn mower. I did not ballance my quad tires and it would go about 75MPH.

im sure he meant mounting tires on a big bike. Cause he already knows how to change a tire on the fiddy.

I don't ride the bike at fast speeds on the street. So I mount my own and don't balance when racing I have them mounted at the track and they are balanced.
