I have a NoMar but this guy below shows a budget tire changer that is all you need.

I think the NoMar is the best DIY choice. It's a good unit for the price. Buying their balance stand is also a good idea and like you said.
After a few changes, you're saving money and can bank it for Farkles


You'll save money on mounting and balancing as well as tires. Buy em online and DIY! No need to put up with some shops crappy attitude while they hold your bike
hostage, making it last on the list of priorities
. You'll really enjoy doing it yourself.

You can wean yourself off relying on the shops for simple things like oil and tire changes. You should DIY anyways, IMO.
