Tire Changing in the Pdx Area
« on: Feb 16, 2013, 01:57:11 am »
Tire Mounting

I have a tire machine in my garage, so might as well use it to my advantage.
I can mount/dismount tires up to 24” anyway (don’t know if I can do bigger), and wheels up to 12” wide.

Off the car:
$4.00 mount or dismount each
$6.00 dismount AND mount each
$7.00 mount or dismount 2 tires/wheels of the same size
$11.00 dismount AND mount 2 tires/wheels of the same size, $4.00 more for each additional

On the car (plus dismount/mount - above):
$6.00 remove and replace one
$11.00 remove and replace two, $4.00 more each additional

Example:
To change one tire that is on the car -
$6.00 to remove from the car, $6.00 to dismount and mount the tire, and no charge to install it back on the car, for $12.00 total.
Tire stores want a minimum of $16.50 each on the car, with no discount for more than one.
To change two tires that are on the car -
$11.00 to take them off the car, $11.00 to change the tires, no charge to put them back on the car, so $22.00 total.
Four tires on the car would be $38.00

Special lug nuts, wheel locks, stretched tires, rims over 16” diameter or 8” wide may require additional charge(s).
Can also rotate tires, and I do split rims.
Sorry, no balancing (yet)
No tire disposal

I have one, but don't think the average person wants it, and I feel it takes more time than it is worth for the $$. I mean, I use it for myself and friends, but... Maybe I could add "Bubble balancing available."

what doesnt the average person want, balancing or bubble balancing?  electronic balancers are kinda $$ and take up space.  if i found 1 cheap i might think about getting 1, but i use my tire machine mainly to do my motorcycle tires and car tire balancers wont work because the shaft is to big to fit in the hub.

Average person doesn't want bubble balancing. When I find a decent spin balancer that I can afford to buy, I'll jump on it no questions asked!

True, and "back in the day" I considered myself pretty good at bubble balancing.

Still the BB. If I can get work lined up, I may go out on a limb and buy a spin balancer though. It's just one of those "odd" investments.
Can I assume that your "friends" are drifters? I'd seriously though about getting a generator to power my 220v compressor and throwing all three of them into my trailer and towing them to Pats Acres for drift weekends behing the Corona wagon.
