Doing it yourself will save you some cash..and the satisfaction of doing it yourself feels good. I have changed both my front and rear on my 1500 and will continue to do so. Using a rig to stady the rim. Will you punish yourself? Maybe...but that satisfaction factor may be better!! I say go for it!I have taken one off an 1100 rim. We only had two smallish tire spoons.
the rim wasn't so good before we started but more so after we were done.
If I can get the old tire off and the new one on - i can get it balanced for free.
normailly it would cost $25-30 to do this. I have 5 tires at the moment I need to get put on. I still have the time involved taking them to the shop-so there is that.
I thought I might give it another go. I'm not really trying to save $ - that would be nice(it does add up). More importantly, I would kinda like to for the satisfaction of doing it. Am I going to punish myself?
I bought some larger tire spoons and some rim protectors, costing me almost what the shop would charge for 3. They are still in the pkg.....
I might take them back and just have a shop do it.
do you change your own tires? or not?
