I pull the wheel off the bike and take it to my local Yamaha/Honda shop. They charge me $30 for the change out. I usually buy the front tire from them but they have no problems with me bring in a car tire to mount on the back wheel. I feel it is a fair price and am happy to let them do it.
I don't think that's a terrible price. I usually mount two at once on my other bikes; I run through a front and rear at about the same rate. So I order a set online and get them delivered to the house by UPS. I've never timed it, but I'm guessing maybe 45 minutes a wheel to R&R the tire and balance it -- hour and a half for both. And I'm retired; what else I got to do?
Retired. Finally found something I'm qualified for.
