luminescient, pay the $30. it's not worth the hassel. Gotta remove your wheels, balance the tyres etc. It's worth the $30 if you ask me.

Otherwise use a tyre lever to get the tyre(s) off and on, maybe a rubber mallet to help get the tyre on the rim.
Do they use a bead lubricant when fitting a bike tyre like they do when fitting a car tyre? (Dunno)

Seriously, $30 to me is worth it.

How often are you fitting tyres?

30 bucks is cheap for 2 tires, if that's all I would have top pay I would get the shop to do it too.

but as it stanbds they will nly mount tires I ordered from them so it's too expensive.

I done 2 tires changes on my bike and with the help of a friend it wasn't that hard.

TBLUMER sounds like you just brought them the bike and they took the tires off, changed them, balanced them, and then put them back on. That usually is around $40-$45 per tire.
I think what luminescient is doing is he brings them just the tire and they do it for $30. You save $20-30 per tire by taking the tire off yourself.
