Street Dreams in Laguna Niguel. IMHO the best!!

Streetdreams Streetbikes - Motorcycle Repair - Laguna Niguel, CA - Reviews - Photos - Yelp

I have been there 2 times when I don't want to do my own work because I am lazy sometimes. Lindsey is amazing. She knows her stuff. Her shop is always packed because they do such fantastic work at amazing prices. If you go tell her Alex referred you. I just like to spread the word on great shops I have been to.

Just dropped off my wheels at Metric Method along with new tires at lunch to have them mounted and balanced. I'll be heading there to pick them up shortly, but from my brief interaction, they act very professionally and have a nice clean shop (they gave me a quick tour). And it was a ton cheaper than all the other places I called as they aren't trying to gouge me over me having bought my tires elsewhere. I'll definitely call them first for the next set to see how they compare.

Curious, how much to mount and balance wheels?

Sorry for the late response. I didn't see your post. Since I brought the wheels in, it cost $44 out the door to mount and balance both tires.

I also used Cycle City Motorsports nearby recently as well as I had a nail in my tire. IIRC, it was free to mount the tire (bought the tire from them) and $10 to balance it. The price of the tire was about $10 more than I could get it elsewhere so the net cost was about the same as I would have paid.
