We separate the charges, tires as parts and m&b as labor. As others have noted, because of lower GP on tires, it’s good to track them separately. While there is a lower gross profit on the tires themselves, there is good gross profit per hour on tire sales if they are priced right and a fast and accurate installer is doing the work.
We account for tires a part as well as the weights and stems required. These ” parts ” are accounted for separately because the GP% benchmarks we use as goals are different for tires, parts and labor.
We dont sell tires but use Discount Tire. We bill out normally with tires as parts and balance on labor. (and we dont track tire sales!!)
We bill out separately, tires are the parts, and M/B is the labor. I have raised the dollar amount on tire markup to cover us on the cost of wheel weights. All other pieces like TPMS rubber valve stems and regular valve stems still get added as needed. Tire disposal is a separate line item also.
We bill the tire out as a part and track sales info. on the part and separate from all other parts. and bill Labor on its own and tracked with all labor
