How much should a tire shop charge to dismount four tires from a car, mount four new tires (purchased from tirerack.com and provided by the customer), balance the wheels and verify alignment/camber?

The car in question uses 225/45/18 tires in front and 245/45/18 tires in rear. New W-rated all season tires have been purchased from tirerack and are on their way via UPS.
In the US, how much should a normal labor rate be to:
a) remove old tires and set aside for a few hours (I will pick them up, no disposal fees involved).
b) Install new tires on wheels, balance wheels.
c) Verify car's alignment. It does not drift or have any alignment problem at present.
d) Do the "camber" alignment on the car to verify that the wheels are not toed in, toed out and are aligned flat for even side-to-side tire wear.
