    What did you stretch? Because they did my 225's on 9.5 no sweat. And 215 on 8.5 which was easier. 40 bucks for all 4.

      Do they do valve stems too? If so, I should go there and it should only cost me about 60 to do all 4 of my tires.

          i stretched 215 on 9 inch rims. just tell them you want a cash deal and they will help you out. they were able to do my tires but they said if they couldnt that they would put them on and i would just have to go somewhere with a bead blaster to finish the job

                  i had the weights on my front wheels come off. not sure if my brake line rubbed them off or if they just fell off. BUT ultimate rebalanced my rims for free

                    Speed factor has That system with The weights inside the rim on the tire. Some kind of beads or something

                      there are a set of weights on the inside on the rims by the face then a set on the inside by the back outer lip. they just stick on. ultimate said they are using the best ones with the strongest adhesive.

                        I need to have a set of tires put on some new wheels, as well as have my wheel's re-balanced. I noticed a shimmer on the steering wheel the other day when I went on the highway. I must have lost a weight.

                        It looks like Ultimate is the place to go?

                          Yes.



                          I took a wheel and tire there yesterday and they did it on the spot. Very impressed, I was prepared to leave it there.

                          New staff though, I only recognized Marla who appears to manage the place.

                              ultimate is a little more than 40 and they dont do food anymore. as soon as kevin left the place died. if you do however want your wheels done their, they do a good job but ask for scott he's the most careful and will take care of you. im never going to winnipeg wheel again they cracked 2/6 of my tires and are trying to make it sound like they were cracked before ....

                                I hit up ultimate on Thursday, it was 80 bucks cash to mount all 4 of my tires...sounds like they've been having problems with bigger lipped rims. They did a flawless job on mine though!

                                  80 bucks? Man... that sucks... still a decent price but now other places are pretty close.

                                    IMO that's not bad at all to properly mount and balance a set of low profile tires on expensive wheels.

                                      It isn't, but considering it used to be $40.. we were getting spoiled.

                                        Meh, I'm cool with 80, it is a butt load cheaper then anywhere else, and they also had to put my valve stems on. It only took a half hour too which is awesome, last summer at west end tire, it took over 6 hours for them to do my car...and I had to sit there and wait because the rims were on the car.

                                          I just phoned Ultimate Wheel on Logan Ave. and the guy who answered the phone had no idea what I was talking about when I asked them if they do road force wheel balancing. 

                                          Some of you guys are recommending Ultimate, but is that because of the cheap cash price?  I've read that road force balancing is far superior compared to static or dynamic balancing.  Can anybody confirm this?

                                          If Ultimate doesnt do road force balancing, then I guess i'll have to goto Keystone Ford (Quick Lane) service to get it done.

                                            Ive never had a problem with "non road force" wheel balancing. Ever.

                                            Ive also never noticed any sort of difference between the two.

                                              Most shops do dynamic wheel balancing.  Very few do road force balancing.  From what I have read, the road force is a better way of getting a completely balanced wheel.

                                                  I as at ultimate today, it was 5 bucks a rim to take old tires off. and 20 bucks a rim to mount and balance. It will be $100 but they are pretty quick and they do good work, not open on weekends though.
