    Going to be getting new tires for the first time on my Tesla and so obviously I have to get them mounted. I’m having a hard time trusting a 3rd party to do it because of how precise lifting a Tesla car is.

    Where do you folks go in the Chicagoland area/Suburbs to get new tires put on? Or do you do it at a service center? I’m thinking of going with Discount Tire since in the past that is where I would get new tires and do tire rotations. But I’m not sure.

    I've had the same fears of someone screwing it up so I paid the high price for the service center to do it.

    How much did it cost you to change and mount the tires at a service center?

    After everything it was $310 per tire on the fronts. Just did it last week at Highland Park. You could probably save $50-75 per tire going to a 3rd party. I probably would have looked into it more but I got a flat last week and had to go to the service center anyways after my roadside assistance.
