Ok, time to change my rear tire, I got 11k km out of it, but the wires are showing off
The shop asks 45$+tx to do it, and I have a little more time now, so.....I bit the bullet, I ordered the tire online, ordered a valve core remover, a 3 piece set tire irons, rim protectors and weights.
I have to do at least 1 change per year, and when the front comes in... at least 2...so why not?
I watched a lot of videos, but this will be my first time.
I'm a little bit confused at balancing..... yes, you need a stand, or beads or not balancing it....
With weights, my question is.... you balance the tire when is new..... but is the wear uniform? my tire now is almost busted... and no vibration.
the weight removed from the tire by wear is important..... so the original balancing should be off...
I'll try to weight it but not sure I have the precision needed.
My point is that I'm not sure the balancing is needed... or that the beads would be the way to go?
Also, I have a 12V emergency compressor, I'll let you know if I can seat the bead with it
or I need to go to a gas station with a compressor.
