Tire Mounting

I found some tires online and just wondering if this is something I can do myself in my shop. I have some small tire irons and could make what I needed in my shop. Or is it an impossible job, take to tire shop? Yes they are tubeless, six ply.

I do all my tire removing and mounting at home, no need for a tire shop, waste of money.

I mount and dismount most of my tires at home, Iíd they are on steel wheels or factory aluminum I donít mind doing it, fancy aftermarket wheels if sooner take it to a shop because doing it at home your likely to scratch up the lip of the wheel. Itís only about $50 to have the dealer do 4 wheels.

Tire mounting is easy, unmounting the old, not so much. Mounting you can do easy, sometimes without tire irons. Unmounting you will need a bead breaker, or some other DIY method.

bought an old homemade for $200.oo. it came with a good motor. some of the hydroloc lines need replacement. i tested the pump with my 14volt cordless drill. it didnt have enough juice to split a log, but it give it a try.
now i am way more motivated, to continue, with updating the splitter.

5 bucks a tire they charge here at wally world
best 20 bucks I can spend if I need tires put on IMO LOL

and many times on things like l;awn mower or small trailer tires, I have BOUGHT them at wally world online, picked up at store, and they mounted tires for FREE for me

have one sitting on my bench right now heading to wally world next week when I have time!

I ain;t doing all that work to save 5 bucks, HECK even 40 to install a full set is cheap to me, no damage to wheels, knuckles the likes
changed enough tires when I was younger the hard way
BS on that now I say LOL

Yeah, what I found out is they charge for for mounting even if you purchased from them.

So do all Walmarts change just $5 to mount? I will find someone to mount.

Are the Kenda Bear Claw tires a decent all around tire? I see Dennis Kirk has them on sale.
