Is it very hard? We have no local places that do it. So I may just buy a tire online and mount it my self? Is it very hard to do? There tubeless tires and on rear of bike I have no issues removing rim I just wonder about getting old tire of rim and new one on

Cool now I have something to look forward to that rear tire has worried me for months . But the cost of a pro doing to it even if I can get there was to much. I installed a center stand on her last year smartest thing I have ever done .

I was just going to ride it if it seems ok I'll let it be if I get wheel bounce I'd just move weights around rim till it's fixed . But I'll check the beads out to

Yes here in upstate ny we run our tires till the steel belts are showing for winter. Just as good as tire chains.
