YES SIR !!!

Rick, who owns Star Rotors

Does it out of his company truck in O'Fallon

He charged my friend $30 to change the front and rear tires with the wheels OFF the bike. (That is Mount and Balance of course)

Can't beat that !!!

702-245-6764 - Rick

You can call me if you want directions from me, or you can ask him.

My number is 636-288-9069 - Dragon

I also have a former racer friend that can custom tune your suspension for your weight and style of riding if your interested. He's done mine and all of my friends bikes and it made a HUGE difference on the back roads. SOOO much better than stock.

You can bring your bike to me and I can help you. Do you have rear sliders? I have front and rear stands.

What year is the bike? I have an 08 and my front stand will work with 07-10 bikes.

I will talk to him about price. Usually he will help you out if you bring some decent bourbon or food as a piece offering.

You could probably take them to Tire Bargain in Crystal City if your close to the Festus/Crystal City area. I don't remember the owners name but I had all for tires changed on my jeep last year for 50 bucks but thats because I know most of the guys that work/worked there.

$50 is not a good deal for 4 tires to be changed on a car lol. its usually $10 a tire to mount and balance, and 2 for disposal fee, so you got about the normal price.

Yes it is. I found that using my feet to support the tire helps a LOT.

The only problem I ever have is the spacers always fall out when I'm putting the wheel back on.
