Tire Mount in Central Houston?

Looking to get my street tires mounted on the SV650 wheels.

Will bring clean wheels, 90deg metal valve stems, cash and Michelin Pilot Road 3s. I've heard these tires mount very easily.

I'm at Heights and I-10 and looking for anybody local this weekend willing to make a little cash!

Thanks,
Nick

Lol that's my fall back. Quoted me at $40 a wheel all in, which is a little high. Looking for something like $30 a wheel if possible.

That's a great rate (even with the $5 in gas) and, if you're in on Saturday, I'd love to chat about my bike.

It's your '05 naked SV.

Pretty sure it's been ridden like 400 miles in the last 6 years. That's including the 200 I've put on it since buying it and realizing the tires are hard as rocks.

I was actually going to suggest Patrick first but since you were asking for something in the Heights that's the closest one I know. Last time I drove out to Patrick though.

I don't use air. I fill with unobtainium4, the vaporous constituent, but thanks anyway.

I stopped at two places, one wanted $50 and the other wanted $65. Mancuso refused and Mainland did it in 2 minutes for $26 - but they didn't offer the air. I think they may have been out of stock.

Looks like I'll be going to Motorcycles Unlimited next time.

If Motorcycles Unlimited had couches they would probably never get rid of ppl from hanging out inside the shop!!

I need to remove my wheels to put my street tires back on.....
