Going Darkside

Post by toanogreen »



I'm in Va. and I'm looking for someone can to put a car tire on a 1800 rim. It seems that many people won't do it, which I understand. I just want to try it to see what the hype is all about. I've done massive research and I feel confident enough to take a chance. If it doesn't work or I don't like it, no big deal. Thanks

Some people have said that if you take the wheel into a Wal Mart they will do it. Probably because they don't realize it is a motorcycle wheel. :D

I have used two sources locally, the tire store across the street because I do a lot of business there.

and a tire shop in the neighboring town, because the owners are old Dirt Bike racing people....
they don't care what the wheel came off of. 8-)

Or you could just do it yourself: Mounting and Demounting tires on rims
