or you could buy front and rear stands and have someone help you take off your wheels, stands will come in handy later on and save some money and get experience working on your own bike, I can help you if needed

Thanks dinosaur! I do plan on getting stands in the future. It is one of the many things to buy on my shopping list. I just need them removed and put back on after powder coating and balance. I Have a center stand on my bike but only the rear tire is lifted.

Once you get the rear wheel off, get somebody to push down on the back of the bike. Remove the front wheel then let the front come down on some card board to prevent scratches.
Reverse for reassembly.

Oh Bike will stay in my garage. I have no problem removing wheels off bike just tires off wheels. I don't want to scratch freshly painted rims also when I get them back so I seek an experienced individual.

Okay so u need someone to come to your house to undo the wheels? And you have the bike where youll just lay it on the ground or leave it on stands while the wheels get painted? Right?

It will be on center stand. Is that not sufficient?
