If you can take the wheels off, Cycle Gear over on Bellaire and 59 does it pretty cheap.

If you call ahead and confirm w/ the employees, Sharpstown CG will generally balance the tire for free. I usually go to any corner tire shop to mount the tire and go to CG for balance. Just make sure you watch them mount so they dont mess up your rotors.

Bring me the wheels and I can mount them. Just can't balance them. But I'm a bit of a drive for you.

I was kind of hoping to ride the bike there, so I was looking for a nearby place (it is a 250, so no freeways).

But maybe taking them off is the way to go.

Fresnel,
You've been invaluable in your advice to me.
If you can get the bike up to me I'll mount and balance the tire, free of charge.
