2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Summer Tires Installed

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

It's time to put summer tires back on our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. For the past several months we've rolled around on all-seasons. But our time with the SRT8 is coming to an end. We need to restore it to original condition before returning the car to Jeep.

We drove the SRT8 to Stokes Tire Pros. The swap cost us $140 and took about 30-45 minutes. It was very convenient for us. And yes, that is our long-term 911 in the background. The Porsche wheels and tires weren't going to fit in any cargo area it had to offer. So we used the Cherokee as a shuttle. Two birds with one stone, as they say.

    $140 to mount and balance 4 tires?? Seems high. My Hyundai dealer only charged me $90 to mount and balance 4 new tires on my Hyundai Sonata's OEM alloys (I supplied the tires.)
