Flat Tire! :( Easy to replace?

3658 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Bill P.
Suckage... Ran over a nail on my rear right tire and now it's flat. Took it into the local tireshop and they said the tire has some heat damage and will be to be replaced (found the damage a little late). They're asking 96 bucks (!!!) for a single tire installed. Seems a tad expensive to me.

How hard would it be to purchase the tire say from tirerack and doing the change myself? Running on the little doughnut right now.

Bummer about that nail!

You'll still need someone to mount the tire on the rim and balance it. Can't do that without very large special equipment.

But it might be worth asking around to see how much they charge for mounting+balancing. Add that to the Tirerack price+shipping.
