Tire install prices
« on: June 03, 2017, 06:25:32 pm »
Just had a set of tires installed at Moto Source.  Prices have gone up to 35 per tire plus 4 tire disposal fee...  Totaling $78 for two tires. The No mar tire changer is sounding even better so I can do it myself.  Mentioned the $$ to the Mrs and got the thumbs up!

With a bazillion bikes between the two of you it seems like a no brainer.

Go for it. $78 to mount a set of tires is too much. Not to mention the inconvenience of having to bring the wheels there while the shop is open.

Been looking at tire lever "spoons."   Any recommendations of good ones for painted rims?   Rich and Co. always did a good job on mine, even buttering up edge.   Prices range from $22 - ~90.

Will be doing tire changes for a dirt bike with spokes, as well as, my street bike rims.  If there's a couple different sets people would recommend, I'm all ears.

Also, I suppose I need to get self-adhering lead balancing weights too and that waxing butter too. 
It's about taking in the most corners to your destination, not about the shortest, quickest route.
