I don't think that's a terrible price. I usually mount two at once on my other bikes; I run through a front and rear at about the same rate. So I order a set online and get them delivered to the house by UPS. I've never timed it, but I'm guessing maybe 45 minutes a wheel to R&R the tire and balance it -- hour and a half for both. And I'm retired; what else I got to do?

Retired. Finally found something I'm qualified for.
