    Tyre change

    Hi, just wondered if any one local can change tyres.

    My rear tyre is shot and I need to change. Got a set of part worn ones that I have on my old bike, like new really. Just been told by my local tyre place he wants 25 per wheel as I can not take the wheels off as my brother in law has my paddock stands and using them.

    Any ideas? this is going to cost me 50 to put some part worns on. shocking

    thats expensive.

    try somewhere like ATS im sure some have facilities to do bike tires, they wont be as much as 25, give them a call.

    I know someone who charges 10 a wheel and they even take the wheel off the bike to do it themselves.

    Abba do kits for this. bead breaking and balancing equipment.

    will prob cost a few hundred quid to get set up and of course you need decent torque wrench and wheel removal tools.

    I would do this myself but for the amount of times that it would get used i cant justify spending that sort of money.

    Where abouts in Wilts are you?

    Tried Bike treads in Swindon? (or even worth giving George Whites a shout)

    im in Swindon, 25 per wheel is for Bike tread.
    Been told this is because im suppliing the tyres and the wheels on the bike!
    I've had a part worn before from them it was 15 fitting. shocking.

    Might just buy a new one and leave theses in the garage for a rainy day

    Garv, I'm not really surprised if you're asking them to take the wheels off as well - who wants to get involved in all that for 20 or whatever? Get your brother in law to pay up or give you your stands back!
    These blokes said they'd do loose wheels for a few quid - they're about 25 minutes south of you. They ride bikes and seem helpful - did a puncture for me and it was pretty cheap.http://www.top-stop.gb.com/
