Mounting Tires on my Motorcyle

I needed to get some new tires mounted on my wheels. I was wondering if anybody knew of a good, cheap place I could get this done? I'm in SW Houston, so if it's close to my area, that's a plus.

If you know how to remove your wheels, you can always take them to Cycle Gear... Also, a lot of motorcycle shops are matching their competitors prices, so you can call around and hammer down a good price. I know Cycle Gear charges $35/wheel (mount and balance), but you have to bring them the wheels.

I called Cycle Gear and they told me 50$ for mount and balance if I didn't buy the tire from them, and 25$ if I did buy it from them. I did not buy the tire from them. They seem to overcharge on most things.

$50 per tire, or $50 for both? If not the latter, that's a good deal.

Per tire. You're saying 50$ for mounting one tire is a " good deal?"

I'm frying my brain in the Circus section, sorry. I meant for both is a good deal. Sounds like they are mind people into buying from them... That sucks.
