Best thing to do is call a couple large tire suppliers who service OTR trucks. They may be willing to install tires not sold by them.



I just bought tires local but when I was calling around one of the venders did say he had Class A owners who buy their own tires and he installs them for $100 each.



Good Luck

...and keep your old tires. If they're just aged out and not wore out, you can sell them for about $500. Some trucker will put them on his trailer and wear them out in a few months.

Shop local, buy local or pay for the experience.....I found the going rate for truck tire install is around $40/tire, a bit more for balancing, depending on type used. Limited brands, but FMCA is also a good option and still uses local dealers....
PS--dealers usually wont buying anything over 4 years old but trucker are good secondary market for used--but you have to get them home--got a pick-up?

No pick up and called around locally. Going rate here in Charlotte, NC to install is 75 to 95 a tire.

Rent a uhaul locally for about $40. Hook it to your motorhome and throw your new tires in. Have the tires guys place your old tires in there as well.

Welcome to the forum.

Have you already ordered the tires? Are you ordering them online? If it's not too late, most online vendors will drop ship them to the installer --or tire shop-- of your choice. Most will also have a list of installers that they either have a relationship or know will accept their drop shipped tires and install them at a reasonable price.

If you can arrange for drop shipping, it will give you a larger area to which you can choose to drive to if the tire shops in your local area are too expensive. In other words, you may be able to find an installer who will do it for a better price 100 miles away ...again, assuming that you can arrange for drop shipping.

If you haven't yet purchased the tires, contact some of the local truck tire shops and sometimes they will match or come close to the price you have found online. It's always good to ask at least. As you can imagine, it makes it much more convenient if you can purchase and have them installed locally.

When I bought new tires a few months ago I check pricing at 4 or 5 shops, and installation price ranged from $20 to $75 per tire, I went with the $20 per tire place, which was a local small shop (5 or 6 employees when I was there) that specializes in mostly commercial and agricultural tires.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Call the local truck stops! They will either have a tire shop on-site or can tell you where one is located!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I bought mine from a local tire shop, the price quoted included everything, including taxes. Six new Sailun 275/70R22.5 LR H truck tires (4 mo old) $1,380 in 2017.
