tire mounting in Seattle

Hello all,
Anyone know a shop in Seattle that will mount motorcycle tires you didn't buy from them? Riding out to Seattle next week and was planning on bringing some tires with me to swap out for the return trip. Problem is I've only changed tires myself twice before but never done a rear. I also haven't mounted the TKCs I have now to put on so not sure I want to spend one of my travel days sweating over tire irons in a gas station for a few hours.

Anyone know a shop or able to give me a hand?

Cycle Gear in Auburn will change your tires. I believe they charge $25 a wheel for mount and balance and old tire disposal. They work on first come first serve. You have to remove and remount your own wheels.

Seattle Cycle Center - $30 when you bring in the wheel

Hey Kids, a callout for help in the Seattle area at the end of this month: I have a 900 Suzuki in San Francisco which I bought the last time I was over there, for holiday purposes. I've booked tickets to come over on the 31st of August but have since found out I can't get a US visa in time for the trip. I changed plans and hope to do something North of the border, starting in Vancouver on the 1st of September. I'm trying to get the bike trucked up to Canada, but none of the local firms want to go out of the US. Is there anyone who can pick up a bike in the Seattle area and ride it across the border for me? I'll buy you a cab ride home. Message me if you can help.
