tire machine help

I need a new rear tire before the gap trip. Anyone available to show me how to use that damn tire machine? I work in Warren and could meet up after work or during lunch.

If you can wait a week or so I can help. I need to order tires for the trip as well and I'd like to change all three at once. Ordering the tires shortly in fact.

Will do. I should have my tires in a couple of days and if my weekend plans fall through, we can do it this coming weekend. If not, maybe this Friday or early next week.

I need a new rear tire as well. Nothing like last minute planning.

I don't know that I'll be able to do 6 tires at once, but if schedules work out I'm happy to take care of Nina's and mine while others watch and learn the process. That machine takes practice and the best way to learn is to do it yourself.

I'll have my tires tomorrow, but I won't know about my weekend availability until Thursday so as of right now let's tentatively plan on next Monday night. If that doesn't work for everyone you can always try to coordinate with AlmightyS as he lives nearby and definitely knows how to use it as well. Just in terms of when I can get there Monday we'll run out of daylight before we can knock out 6 tires anyway.

My tire change is non-critical. I have fresh shoes on little ninja.

But, I may tag along to observe. I have only seen Brad use his machine once.

My tire change won't be necessary as well because I'll just drop off the wheel either to Ricks or have Wheelers do it while we're there.
