can i replace my car tires by myself. how much would it cost?

Somebody kind of answered this, but not completely. You need a tire removal tool and a balancing tool. Usually, these are two separate machines at an auto or tire shop. The tire removal tool breaks the bead in the tire and separates the tire from the wheel. They make some special hand tools that can do the job, but they require a lot of elbow grease. It operates similarly to your bike tire tool but much bigger and beefier (also a little different in design. I've seen these through harbor freight tool for under 100 bucks. If you bought the actual tire machine, I think those can be had for under $1k nowadays, maybe even $600. Of course, these are not the same industrial quality as those used by professionals. The balancing can get a hand balancer, but I'm not sure how much these cost. You'll need the appropriate adaptor for the lugs and so forth. I think Harbor Freigh also sold these at like $50-100, but don't quote me. The machines for this run very expensive and I couldn't even tell you the cost as they are completely computerized. Basically, without a couple hundred dollars invested, you could not come close to changing your tires. On top of this, it is a pain to break a tire bead manually. You usually need a big 2x4 and a sturdy mount to leverage the bead off. Now if you are talking about replacing the wheels and tires at the same time, that is different. If you buy one of those wheel/tire packages online, they come mounted and balanced. So all you need to do is jack up the car and change each wheel separately.

no. you need a special machine to remove the old ones and install the new ones.

you can do it if you work for a tire company!

Unless you have the equipment to separate the tires and wheels, you're never gonna get it done. It's usually only something a tire store or garage or service station has around.

Depends on the size of tires you have. My daughters Honda has special tires that cost around $150 apiece. If you look the car up in you should find they will have them pretty cheap if their not something special like hers. Be better to let them change them then you will have them on good an a warrant on them also.

You can have the tires mounted on the rims at the tire store, then take the tires home and install them. I don't know if you would save any money/time.

    0 1/5 Angel_Barrel "MysticPower83" (Alabama) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: 2 Ton Electric Scissor Car Jack 1/2" Impact Wrench 12V (Misc.) Ok, where do I start? I forget who I ordered this from, but let me be clear. What you see in the picture is NOT what they deliver. ABSOLUTE ridiculous, you would think for the money you pay for this item that you would get what you ordered. They made two delivers to me and neither one of them was this picture, nor what was in this box. I do a lot of business with amazon and never had a problem, but recently my orders have been crap ! The first order I receive was some safety gloves and power plugs cables in a gray box, the second was in a blue box with a small jack pump. After that I said forget and didn't bother. Be careful when placing orders. Amazon use to be a very reliable site, but not so much anymore. I always read reviews, but this slipped under the radar. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 26, 2013

    Greatest deception

    0 1/5 Julio Gonzalez (Miami) - See all my reviews, June 26, 2013

    it is a great addition

    0 4/5 Ezeobiakor - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: 2 Ton Electric Scissor Car Jack 1/2" Impact Wrench 12V (Misc.) This kit is wonderful it saves me a lot of stress, energy and time I use to change my tires. I give it a four star because it would love if they improve on it with a tire inflator, sometimes all we need is to add air before we get to the next station and it would be even more wonderful if all this would come in one toolbox. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 8, 2013
