Phoenix area tire shop

Can anyone recommend a reputable tire shop in the Phoenix area? Preferably one that handles Toyo's. My Mt's have about 35k on them now, and need balancing. I think I may have spit some weights since I came out here. Doesn't have to be a Toyo dealer, just good folks to deal with. Thanks. Jamie

I've heard good things about Desert Rat truck centers... but not personally tried them... I usually buy my tires at Costco..

Its all about the same here as far as tire shops go. I would however stay away from the little tire shops that you see down MC 85. Lol. If you have driven by them you know what I mean. As long as its a computer balance it will be ok. You could train a monkey to run one of those. A road force would be nice but not really necessary. I have the same tires as you and I have seen 60 lbs of force on a few of mine. The freeways around here aren't real friendly with 35s either. Especially the 101.

Thanks guys. I went to the Toyo dealer on Camelback in Avondale. Can't remember the name right now, but they did a good job. Looks like I had 0 weights on the inside of the wheels. The tech said it looked like they had been thrown off most likely due to improper installation. The rim protector on the Toyo's and the BFG's is a pain for seating weights. So it's not uncommon to loose em'. Thanks again for the help. Jamie
