It is a small shop so you can actually see when they are working on your bike as opposed to bigger shops where you would have to wait at the front.

First pic shows scratched side, 2nd pic shows what it SHOULD look like, 3rd pic shows a 1" scratch line with the wheel tape scratched off as well, the rest you see is not scratches, flash captured EVERYTHING...I keep good care of my bike and know almost every scratch on it. Tony @ HoPD takes good care of my wheels and they were not like this before I had the dealership change the rear tire...anyone have some black touch up paint laying around?

why pay someone to scratch your rims? i found out a very long time ago that i was perfectly capable of scratching my own rims and have been doing just that for 30 years. seriously.

i don't use a bead breaker or even rim protectors, anymore. remove the valve core, soak the bead with WD-40 for five minutes and gently work the spoon into the bead, a little at a time, methodically around the tire. two spoons and a little lubricant is all you need. no balancing required, either.
i'll get flamed for that one but i don't have any problems at 150MPH. never have.

They work well. Two sets are better. I actually mounted my last rear tire with no tools at all, just tire lube and leather gloves.

yes, i have a pair and have used them but for me, they're just not worth the hassle. they are bulky when you're dealing with such a limited space and they seem to bind the tire iron and hurt, as much as help, the tire changing process.
i'm not an person and i don't mind a little bit of scratchy imperfection on my wheel, however i do have friends that ARE and have forever been in search of that perfect, scratchless tire change.
sure, they get lucky sometimes but more times than not, they are disappointed with the job, regardless of who does it. constantly repainting or touching up this and that, here and there.
i guess it's to each, his own. me, i prefer to save money, get the job done on my schedule and know the job was done right, even if i do get a scratch or two out of the deal.
BTW, i have polished lips on my rim and could easily polish out any of the minor scratches i incur...........................if i were .
