I, too, cal SoCal "my" shop.  Their prices were within $10-15 of the best
prices I could find on the Internet, for just the tires.  Wheels-on-the-bike
installation charge, including static balancing was $65, which equals 1 hour
of labor.  For the slightly extra cost, I'd rather give them my business and
keep them in business.
