So this guy at a shop quoted me by phone at $25 per wheel+tire mounting? Brand new Hiper Single bead lock, with new tires.
That's $100 are you serious??

It's just torque wrenched so he says it's s little tedious. Oh they are single bead lock (half-the work), I forgot to mention that to the guy.
I just got them new so I'm afraid of striping/breaking something. Maybe if they were dual bead locks then maybe more. But $100 is a lot for screwing on some bolts and inflating tires.

I believe they are to be torqued to 7ft lbs, I have hipers and I mount my own, the harbor freight bead breaker is great. Just don't over torque and you'll be fine

They are really easy to mount, the rings have to be torqued to 11 ft-lb max. You just need the torque wrench, a 3/8" 12 point socket, tire irons and antiseize.

sounds like you will be saving $60, getting a tire mounter and gaining experience. thats a win win. plus now you can charge your buddies $80 and gain some extra cash haha.

I did mine myself... a little WD 40 around the rim and I used an 18v impact to zip through the bolts once I had them all started. Quick and painless
