Need new tires for my Zooki

Hey all,
Since purchasing my '06 Suzuki C50 in 2007, I have put 10k+ miles on it and towards the beginning of this riding season I have discovered that my rear tire has developed a slow leak (I have to pump the tires weekly to keep them inflated above 10 psi) so I am guessing I have a teeny puncture or something. I figure at this point I can get new tires and solve the leak problem at the same time. I wish to stick with the IRC tube-type tires I have now since they have been performing well on the street. However I do not have a means of hoisting the bike up and removing the wheels. Where can I get this done at a shop (i.e. ride bike there and leave it for them to do)? I think I PM'ed CP about this with no response a while ago.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT:
I am trying to avoid dealerships since the place I got my bike from treated me like sh*t and I do not trust Chicago Cycle even though they are 5 min. from me.

Chicago Performance can easily take care of this, and he isn't too far from you. Bring him plain m&m's for a good price.

U getting this Ken? Please respond or PM me :-D

By the way:

Tires:
FRONT: 130/90-16
REAR: 170/80-15

Brand: (I am 90% sure, will confirm when I get home) IRC GS-23. I might be considering white wall tires just cause they look pretty cool.

Ken, I can tell you with 100% certainty that they are indeed GS-23's upon further consideration I am going to go with regular tires, not white walls.

Props to CP for the new tires. Its been about a week and many miles and tire pressure is the same as when I first picked up the bike!
