    I was looking at that exact model machine. Would you say it's worth it and the quality you had expected?

    you should start charging half of what every shop around your are charges- make some of the money back, help another ride save money and create competition ... win for everyone !!

    $35 a tire off the bike is the best I can find in the Little Rock area.

    I am completely happy with it. The motor has plenty of torque to spin the wheel; the arm is solid enough to keep the duckhead where it needs to be; the bead breaker has plenty of force to break stubborn beads; and every part on it is available from Derek Weaver. Lots of people told me to buy a Coats, but I don't do enough tires for that expenditure. It works quite well. I was going to get the extra arm for holding the opposite bead in the bead well, but it hasn't been necessary. Since you are not manhandling the mount bar around with two hands and a hip (a la NoMar and Horror Freight), you are available to push down on the opposite bead while it is spinning the tire on.
    Motorcycle don't lie!

    $25 at Cycle Gear. They have to be off the bike and you have to buy the tires from them.

    Really, anything under $40 is reasonable. I'd expect a little more if they're on the bike, especially a rear wheel.

    Wowsers! I don't feel too bad about my local shop charging $30 a tire when off the bike. There are places that will charge less around So Cal down to $15 per tire but I don't have a spare car. Last time, I did my own tire since I had couple of spoons and I've got the scratches to show for it. I kinda wish I paid $30 to avoid the scratches...

    Exactly what I was hoping to hear.
