Back in the UK, my local car tire store has the equipment to change bike tires but doesn't sell the tires. I bring in the (mail-ordered) tires on the back of my old airhead RT and they help me remove the wheels, mount the tires for me and chat with me while they're doing it. Last time I insisted on paying double because they were only going to charge me £5 (about $8) for the entire operation.
I'd kill to get $8 tire changes!
Local shop I bought my tires from wanted $90 bucks to do it. The old tires were off the rim's( had to be cut off with a sawzall, they were stuck!)
