Where do i put my tires on?

Ok so here is my problem I have spent the last 20mins trying to find a shop that will hook me up and put my tires on my sv1000s. I have a nail in my rear tire and i am going ahead and changing out the front at the same time. Every place I am calling here wants $70 PLus per tire .... WTF I know they want me to buy a tire from them, and they will make it like 40 a tire... , they also want some expensive a$# prices for the tires. Im getting some BT 016's for 100 for the front and like 150 for the rear. Im bringing the tires down to houston to put on the bike and driving back to SA this weeken. Does anyone have a suggestion. I dont want to go to stubbs sw due to their idiot mechanics (personal experience), and that one on hwy 6 and westhimer. Anyone else got any ideas? Thanks guys. the bike is like on 99 and the westpark toll way. thanks

Where are you located? Have you called Motorcycles Unlimited or Sunny's Motorsposrts?
Those would be the best bets.

You put your tires on at the front and rear of your bike, DUH.

I know someone out in Katy that has a tire changer in his garage. $10 off the bike. PM me for details.

BUT if you don't want to be bothered by it take it to Motorcycles Unlimited and Patrick will hook it up. Motorcycles Unlimited FTMFW

Javi hooked me and friends up on tires more than once. Did a lot more than just swap out the tires, he cleaned it all up, oiled the chain, checked sprockets, and even found a problem with a pin in the brake he fixed for free. Good guy, great attitude, let me watch / help. If I didn't do my own mechanical work, he'd be my go to guy (on the South West side).
