Well started Monday morning took the bike to my buddy,s shop, put it on the rack, and proceeded to take off the back wheel. so far so good.
Went to have the tire put on only to find out the shop was closed on Monday go to plan B.
Called my buddy up to see if he could do it. Would be glad to he said but we have no power. (Living around Richmond VA after a hurricane sucks)
Called buddy on Tuesday, said he could do it but not until after 6. Went to see him and he looked at me and said this is a car tire? I said I know that.
So he mounted the tire and I am good to go, But by now its 6:30 and my buddy's shop is closed.
Finally today I got it all back together and used a liquid to balance it instead of beads(Buddy has it for big truck tires)
Wow took a ride and it was awesome. Balanced out great and rode so smooth.
Me and the wife are riding up to DC for the day on Friday so I will get the chance to really try it out.
Thanks for all the help I am sold and will never go back.
I will post some pics when I get the chance.

cheers Congrats sir! Please make sure you get the mold release off before you go slamming it in a turn. In other words just take it easy or medium speed until it's scuffed. Then you can own it.
