Recommendations for tire installation shops in VA/MD/DC

I'm planning to order tires online and would like to know if anyone can recommend a good tire installer that's relatively inexpensive in the VA/MD/DC area. Thanks in advance.

Check here: Hunter GSP9700 Wheel Vibration Control System
Then call around. It should not be much more than $20. I have a dealership here in my little town that quoted $15.88 per wheel for mount, balance, and valve stems. Most places should be between $15 and $20 per wheel; Wal-Mart can do it for $15, but why not get a place with one of the good machines and actual technicians to do it?

When I bought my Goodyear Eagle GTs from Tirerack, Merchants put them on. They seemed reasonable.

depending on what site you order from..most have a listing of preferred installation shops....I know tire rack does.....most will drop ship your tires to that installation shop if you pre-arrange with the store...

Goodyear Tire in the Ashburn Plaza with the skating rink offered to match tirerack pricing with shipping for me last time I was in the store

FYI, Paul, Tirerack does have a listing and Merchants is on it.
