I got me some 18's!!!
Has anyone here gone to Costco to mount and balance the tires and rims, Can they be trusted to do a good job? It's cheap (Only ten dollars a wheel)

do not go to the Costco in Arlington!!! They dropped one of my sportecs and chipped another. I'm in the process of trying to get them to reimburse me for the refinishing.

i got a flat tire once on the way to big bear and i got one tire mounted and balanced there/ it was fine. its kinda hard to mess that up. machine does most of the work. i would trust them but its your choice.

I have gotten plenty of tires mounted at my costco on Long Island and they've always done a great job. I just noticed he was in NoVA so I figured I'd warn him about the Arlington Costco

You can get screwed anywhere - its all about the individual handling your wheels. The mounting and balancing is done by machine - so all the chance is left to how much the guy working there cares about you and his work (ie. does he throw your wheels around, handle them inappropriately.)

I wanna stand there and watch him with a knife in my hand. So if he disrespects my wheels i can shank em.

Hey Brrman,

Sorry to thread jack, but since your setup is like mine (tip and 1.8T) and your pretty much all stock except a chip.....would you do rims or exhaust as your next mod? I'm kind of leaning towward a nice deep borla. =)
