Aftermarket wheels install?

Whenever any of you guys got aftermarket rims, how did you go about mounting them and everything? I asked my dealership and they said about $184 which sounds really steep; that is 1/4 the price of the new rims that I got.

I have paid about 33 a tire for my Jeep before never had to do it for the Camaro yet. Dealers will charge more the your average tire shop. That was for mount and balance by the way.

I had NTB install on my previous 2 cars. $60 total (each car - all 4 wheels and tires).

That sounds right, and my rims were 1900$......you have mount, dismount, tpms to other tires, and then spin balance (then think new valve stems or other lug nuts too cost to add if too), and of course with a tire store they can not just treat your precious rim like garbage they have to have a guy spend a couple hours doing it to avoid damaging the rims, and yes my old stock polished did get a little scuffing even though the best guy did the job and he needed to just be more careful with the spoons.

That's not too far off especially if they have to reprogram your TPMS with the gun. Mine were $135 for all four but the TPMS reset didn't work from the dash. I had to take it to the dealer and they charged me $60 to hit the wheels with the gun!
