It seems that everytime I go somewhere that does it for really cheap I end up with scratched up rims. Houston Superbikes charges like $50-$70 but they have really nice machines set up for carbon fiber rims and it leaves zero scratches which is pretty hard to do when changing a tire.

I have heard some rather bad reviews from CG.

Most recently, my friend was given a bag of "parts" after they changed his tires.

Motorcycles Unlimited is 42.50 or something per tire on the bike mount and balance.


2wheeltoys is 20 per tire mount and balance on bike.

dudes in tomball neglected to mention on the phone they won't mount a patched tire (yet i saw a plug tool in the shop on a lift) so i rode from crappyfield to tomball with the tire around my waist like an innertube. called the guys on spring branch drive and they knocked it out
