if i had the machine i;d do it for u...cuz i do them all period in autoshop..its very simple.
and mitch..doing it proper is a biggie, if u got some ignorant idiot who doesnt pay attention to wat hes doing..ur tires are gone. trust me. i've seen ppl in my class lookin around and mounting tires..and got them ripped to pieces! plus some shops dont do the proper procedure or know how to work on nicely finished rims...
Of course mounting a tire onto a rims should be done properly. The kids in your class are just learning how to do it, therefor they are not taking the proper procedures. The mechanics at Canadian Tire have done this numerous times. The one by my house is a new one and they have a huge window to see into the bays. I see them mounting tires onto rims perfectly fine. They're not dazed and confused while doing it.
Whatz so hard about it?
1. Get the tire onto the rim properly.
2. Fill up the tire to itz proper PSI.
3. (Get alignment if you want to spend the $)
4. Put rims onto the car.
If it was something not so simple to do then I wouldn't take it there.
