Where to get tires mounted?

Where should I go to get tires mounted? CLSB sponsor Jim's tire service won't work on rims with tubes. I've used woodfield motorsports in the past, but they get pricey.

I'm trying to get new tires on for autobahn this weekend.

Not sure if Mao works on tubed tires either. Geomoto does for sure.

by all means, pimp me out. I can always tell someone to fuck off if I don't want to change tires for them

I'm the one that got emotional damage. I thought my local pro would back a bike in over my leg if I told him to set the tire pressures. I also found out he is a Cubs fan so anything I can do to make him re-consider.

Anyway I helped him get better gas mileage for that first session.

I was gonna show you this kick ass tool I got, but forget it now. No more help for you.

I've been jumping mountain bikes long before I picked up the DRZ.
We built pretty decent dirt jumps in Chicago. If they close all go cart tracks around because of noise issues, I will always have a plan B
