Well I went over to get the tires changed on my bike and the total for 2 was $82.70. When I asked what had happened to the $25. changes that I had paid previously, I was told that that price was only for tires bought at GBM.

Wow, ambush pricing from GBM?  I'm shocked.
Cliffs still charges $25 for walk-in, free install if you buy from them.

ouch, sorry Ben.  You should have made them take them off and put the old ones back on and asked for a refund  Wink

Seems like lots of places are gouging for mounting and balancing these days. Even my friend who mounted and...ahem...."balanced" both of mine, won't mount tires he didn't sell anymore...

It's what it is, and I'm glad they are mounted, but I'll be going elsewhere as I have 3 more sets of tires to mount and balance.I think it might be time to visit Cliff's. Is it in Norfolk?

It's just on the other side of Millis from me, not too far and a nice ride.

It's like the One Step Beyond episode where the creatures from another planet land on earth and state that they're here to serve man. They even have a book detailing how to do so. It's only when thousands of earthlings are being loaded onto the space ship to ostensibly visit the home planet of their visitors that one of the earthlings gets a peek of the book, and belatedly yells, "It's a cook book!!!"

Ben,

 That is an episode of The Twilight Zone called To Serve Man, which is the title of the book they give the humans.  It takes one determined indivdual months to finally translate their language into English. One of my FAVORITES for sure!!
