Red face $90 to remove and replace tires

Not for nothing but, i just decided to not pay $90 bucks anymore for bringing my wheels in to my local bike shop and have them spend 4 minutes on the tire machine to remove and install new tires. thats right i bring wheels in that i already removed off the bike,

I order a nomar classic tire changer and been viewing those videos before i arrives tomorrow,

ill follow up with a review on how i did.

Seeing as mine is a race bike, the tires are always changed at the track for free when we buy new race tires.

Wow locally here its $35 total, for front and rear mounting. Worth it to me to save sweat and muscle. But for $90 wow I would defiantly change my own, Shit dirt bike tires are hard enough.

i have a no mar classic, it's well designed and very easy to use. i use windex during removal and install, so there is no worry about the tire slipping on the rim.

Curious how much of a pain an 18" x 8.5" car tire would be to change on this. If its even possible.

Hey guys, watched nomars video about 15 times and installed my tires, i must say
with being inexperienced like myself it took about 5 minutes, it took longer to set up the machine about 25 minutes then change tires.
money well spent on my part i think,
