    Trying to avoid wrestling the tire on the garage floor or spending $60 at BMW to stretch on a new rear tire.

    Thanks in advance,

    If it's a rear we oughta be able to get in on in 1/2 hour or so, over in west sac, let me know. Is it on your GS?

    I timed myself once while changing the rear tire on my GS. It took me an hour to complete the whole job, from roving the wheel from the bike to replacing it.
    The tires are easy to spoon off and on; breaking the tire down is the hard part.

    It was the rear. Ended up dropping the wheel off at cycle gear as I was out of time to do it myself. Thanks for the replies.
