Had a nail in my tire. Last summer I drove around for a good hour looking for a place in maple ridge that could repair a 24" tire. After about 6 shops I finally found one and the tire guy took the new shrink wrap off of the machine. charged me $175.00 to repair it.

I have had other vehicles in the past where the tire shops actually do it for free

Most places now can easily do 28+. Even old machines can do 24s if they weld up a bracket,its pretty simple

$20 a corner for a touchless good job is more than acceptable IMO. I've never seen in considerably cheaper and it usually comes with complimentary scratches.

K so wheels look good. No damage. But they use a bar anways. Maybe machine broken. They only use one bar though. U reverse mount wheels anyways so if they did fuck up u would never see. 20 a piece was cheap anyways with balance. In the end good installers dont need the best machine.
