I just wish you weren't so far away. We don't have squat on the south side.

I bought the HF tire changer with moto attachment and also have the No-Mar bar. I haven't decided whether I should mount it to the concrete or to a pallet and put locking casters on the underside or not. If anyone wants to come over and help me set it up, you're more than welcome to use it free of charge. I'm in Fresno - Teal Bend neighborhood. PM me for details.

I sugest adding Mojo Blocks to any HF tire changer setup.

Tires sale priced everyday. Mail in rebates from the tire manufacturer available. Also, Dunlop recently started their MAPP program for the online sellers. Now you can purchase Dunlop tires from your local MH sponsor for less than the online stores.
What's the location of your shop? Is there any address I can find? Also what are your hours of operation? Thanks.

Not to mention that I'm pretty sure Patrick is a mod on here. But honestly, if a member has the ability to change a tire for another member in exchange for something there shouldn't be an issue. I'm sure that's why this post is still here though, lol.

I can't find anyone that will change my tires for less than $100....

on the bike I can get them changed for $70...$15 a piece if I take them off.

It's a freakin 30 min job at the most. These shops are some freakin raping fools....

Your's is one of the more convoluted emails ever...$100/$70/$15. WTF?

I believe most shops have a labor rate of around ~$100hr. That would be ~$50 for your "freakin 30 minute job." Of course, most shops have a minimum 1 hour labor charge, so it actually sound like a good deal to get it done for $70, or $15 or whatever you get it done for.
I think you should look into opening your own tire changing shop, because your business model (proven, I assume) should bring tire changes from all over the city and you'll be rolling in it. AND, you won't have to worry about that pesky shop rent, insurance, utilities, taxes, tools and supplies that those crooked, money grubbing, shops do.
Good luck with that.

Not me so much; I felt it was insulting to the guys who are trying to run a business and stay in business. I don't know of any who are getting especially rich.

Sometimes it's better to pay a little more. I used to search for the best tire mounting prices (car and bike) but after having a couple wheels scratched I changed my thought process. Now I go to places that can either repair the wheel themselves or are big enough to cover any damages. If you go to Joe Blow tire shack for $15 and he bends your wheel, more than likely he isn't going to buy you a new $300 wheel.

I'd rather pay $20-30 more to have my wheels come out the same as they went in.
