Dropped the wheels and tires off today to get mounted and balanced. I thought about doing them myself, and probably will in the future. $64 to mount and balance 4 tires... Maybe a fair price, but more than I want to pay. I was willing to shell out the cash this time because it hit 115 here today and I didn't feel like wrestling tires in that heat.

Thinking about grabbing one of those manual tire changers. Something like the ones harbor freight sells, but slightly stronger. I see them for about $100. If it proves to be too flimsy, I can beef up the weak points. I have a welder and a grinder.


Took the long way home from dropping off the tires. Who could have done this?
