Default Best/cheapest place to get tires mounted/balanced in Greenville?

Hey everyone, just registered as I had no idea this forum existed until I started searching for Greenville bike nights

Anyway, I've been riding on and off for the better part of 12 years but haven't owned a bike much of the time I've lived in Greenville. I recently purchased an '05 SV1000S that needs new tires, and am trying to find the best place to have tires mounted and balanced.

So far the cheapest place I've found seems to be Suzuki Cycle Specialties on wade hampton - their prices on tires were almost as competitive as online pricing, and they were (by a decent margin) the cheapest place I could find to actually mount/balance the tires. However, I read some reviews on them saying they didn't balance tires properly etc, so I'm not sure whether to trust them.

I have no equipment to get the front tire off my bike and would rather not go out and buy a 24mm hex wrench, 24mm socket, front stand, etc, just to have my tires replaced, so more than likely I'll ride the bike in to wherever I will get the tires changed. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
