Guess this is the right forum, if it's not, please move.

Just wondering if people could give me an estimate on how much it would cost to get my current tyres changed over to new rims. I'm just getting some Turbo Blades to replace the ones I have at the moment on my 93' EB Falcon. So yeah, basically to have the current rims removed, current tyres changed over to the new rims and then the new rims re-fitted.

Any help appreciated,

Cheers,

Michael

some places will do it for a slab :) not a place like bob-jane though...

if you have a huge pry bar and a beadbreaker, its easy as to change a tyre yourself, i used to have to change truck tyres for a holiday job. but the beadbreaker useually kills the tyre :(

that was your holiday? gees.... my holiday is anything away from changing truck/passenger/agg tyres


but you do speak the truth, it is easy to do but not everyone would know how to take tyres off let along car tyres without scratching th rims. and then you need to get them beaded up properly and balanced


EDIT: what sort of bead breaker did you use?? :/ dont see how ya could damage the tyre unless it was some cheap s**t tyre on a double liped rim or somethin
