Where to change tires in Chicagoland?

Hi there! For those of you who has a separate set of winter and summer tires/wheels, where do you bring them to get them put on? Back to the dealership? Or some other shops? I'm just too lazy to do it myself especially I don't have air tools. I used Discount Tires before but I can't say they are exactly the best in the handling department to prevent minor scratches etc.

Thanks

I took mine to Car-x on Grand. $20.00

This after I called Cassidy Tire (river north location) and they told me they wouldn't install anything that they hadn't sold to me. I said, its 10 minutes on your lift and 20 lug bolts and your telling me I can't pay you for that? Silence... Apparently they are making a ton of money and don't want any current/future business.

Thats shitty of Cassidy Tire..Oh well they probably just lost future business. Thats why I love Discount Tire. They will patch tires free for you...(even if you didnt buy them from them.) It really shows good will and makes people come back. I remember when I got a tire patched way back in the day and when they told me it was free I was shocked. That kept me coming back there for my tires for 15 years. That small gesture created a customer for life. I guess Cassidy Tire has a few things to learn.

Try Nortown on North Avenue/Elston, I've been having tire work done there for years, they open early and it's first come first served unless you want to leave your car. http://www.nortown.net/index.htm

Ashland Auto and Tire (Addison & Ashland), They are super nice and know what the heck they are talking about. Not to mention they dont charge you for all sorts of random crapola. Trust me I have been all over the city looking for a place. When my X3 when out of warranty I just take it there for service and they use oem parts. Check them out on YELP for more reviews.
