  • Tire Machine?

    Anybody have or have access to a tire machine? I have nine to dismount and seven to mount. I can do the work, just need the machine!

    Thanks!

      Yeah, there was a rim clamp machine that popped up on Craigslist for $400 (needed some repair) but it disappeared pretty dang quick.

        If you can't find one, just go to a tire shop. It won't cost too much.

          To dismount 9 tires and mount and balance 7? I think you and I have different opinions on what is "not too much". Lol. Most tire shops charge $15 to $25 to mount and balance one tire.

            My son took 6 wheels to swap around tires to a little hole in the wall in Longview last week. Cost him $65 for all 6.
            - 1988 XJ Base - I don't actually drive it. It just sits in the driveway while I throw parts at it.

            - 1990 XJ Laredo - Old and busted, but it'll get the job done!

            - 1994 XJ Base 2-door - Where'd the other doors go?

            - 1996 XJ Sport - It's red. What else can I say?

            - 1997 XJ Country - My wife wanted something "pretty".

            - 1998 XJ Limited - Cheap and leathery.

              Nice. What's the name of that shop?

              It's all about finding the right shop. Have been quoted $20 each at Jimmy Brown's in Tyler. Of course they can't thread a oil filter on without cross threading it, so they're not getting my business. Have been using Tire Barn in Tyler, I'll call them and ask, got a few I need to have mounted up as well.

              There was a fairly built TJ that belonged to a guy that worked at Discount Tire on S. Broadway before they moved. He was never interested in the group, even though I left a few cards for him.

                $20 each is about the going rate. I'm really not trying to spend a couple hundo on mounting and balancing. I'll check out Tire Barn. There's a little shop on 155 that I may stop and talk to, as well.

              I don't know anyone in Tyler, but in Nacogdoches the "Latino" side of town always has the best rates.

                Don't know if it's worth me asking about, but my father in law has a tire machine & balancer in his shop that hasn't been touched as long as I've been in the picture (I'm sure he'd sell)... If anyone may be interested I can see what he wants for them & get specifics...

                If i had someplace to keep them & had the funds I'd buy them but sadly I have neither

                  I already got my tires swapped but absolutely ask him how much he wants for the equipment! I'm definitely interested in buying (for the right price).

                    Wouldn't do ya much good in that shop.. It's more of a "storage collect all" with no power running to it. Plus, if I had a place to put it AND be able to put to use (ok, and the money), I'd buy it to keep for use on the farm if nothing else.. Sadly I have none of the above to make it happen
