Wow that's good for a rear tire... I quit changing tires with the 19" rims it was just not worth the 14.50 to take it wrights.

Thanks
Scott

LOL, $15 is too much for my cheap blood. I'd take it to a shop for $10 and even then it's iffy.

Besides, the guys I ride with always talk crap about how fast we can do it. None of us are great, but we're not too bad either.

No need to feel stupid, but yes the bead buddy rocks. I think rockymountain sells them for $10.

I did buy the bead buddy and that thing makes a huge difference. Worth the $12 for sure.

i've seen these tires hold up amazing or completly get trashed, seems like when they first came out they had some molding problems or something to where every outer knob would get ripped off, they seem to be holding up better for all my buddies now though, im still stuck on the Bridgestones (:
