    Prescott AZ Area Tire Changing

    Anyone in the area share a group, tire changing machine?

    I moved to AZ from NC in April 2014, selling my Coats 220 as it was awkward to move. Just looking to save money and do it right.

    Tire Bead breaker

    Hi Marc,
    I live in the Prescott Valley, AZ. and have a new Harbor Fright tire bead breaker, if your interested in using it your more than welcome too.
    I traded in my old 09 GSA for a new 2014 R1200 GS before I was ready to tire the old motorbike,so I have not used it yet.

    Don't know about Prescott, but Mototire in Phoenix is where I go. I call ahead and order the tires I want and bring the wheels. The guy is is very good and fast. I'm in and out in 15 minutes. Danny is the owner. Mototire.net.

    +1 But I'm only a mile away. There's also a Cyclegear practically next door to Mototire.
    Motor On '/,

    I wouldn't trust the idiots at cycle gear with anything. The guy at Mototire knows what he's doing and he's fast. If I pay a little more, fine. If I rode more, I'd get a no mar and do it myself, but I only change tires about once a year anyway.

    Star Island

    Ron,

    I took off my wheels and hauled my wheels and tires to Star Island Motorsports in Prescott Valley. $40 to mount without balance, as I have a balancing rig. Thanks for the offer of help. The service manager gave me a couple strips of lead weights, probably because one of the tires was mounted backwards. They must have missed my giant black, directional arrow.
