So it just ticks me off having to go to a tire shop to have tires I already have mounted and balanced, often to the tune of $100+. Our friends at Harbor Freight Tools offer low cost options for doing both.
Before the advent of the big, heavy, expensive pro-grade tire-changing machines and digital spin-balancers used by shops, this is how tire installation and balancing was done. Well, tires are still round, and still rubber. I figure the wheels and tires on the Mirage are small enough that using these old-tech methods and a little elbow grease might be worth the meager investment.
Thoughts? Anyone here have experience doing this?
