Default How much do you pay in the states to have your tires changed

I hope this is the right forum but i have a question. How much do pay if you have your tires put on rims and have them installed on the car ?
Whats a normal price for that in the USA ? Is it more or less then $ 100.
BTW the car is a 1999 Bonneville !! Thats why i ask here !!
thanxs

Cause somebody tried 2 charge me $ 300 for doing it and i think that is really high !!
But you paid allready $ 170 for only 2 rims and tires to be changed ?
In germany the most you pay is 100 for the full car

lucky man thats really cheap
i do not know how much it would be to buy all four of my tires
i just bought 2 cuz thats all i could afford
i imagine that 300-350 for my tires if i would have got all for 170x2
i dont know if you can get four tires on your car that are brand name and all said and done it is under 150 go for it
170-for two tires in the states
100 or so for four tires in germany, i have half the mind to send my car to germany for tires

No !! The $ 300 is just for the service to put them on the car !! Not including any tires or anything. $ 300 is just for the work !!
