What’s the going rate for changing a kart tire.
for 1, 2 or 4 ??

I’ve seen anything from $20 to $50 for a set depending on the person.

Thanks James,
That is actually more than I expected on the high end. $20 doesn’t seem unreasonable at all. Do appreciate that it is not as easy as some make it look.

At a recent race it was super humid and I just got lazy, did not want to walk to the tire machine. I changed a set sitting in a chair in my pit stall! For anybody that has the equipment it shouldn’t take more than 10 mins. $20 is paying a premium.

I think it depends on whether the expectation is for them to scrap the old tires as well. That can cost as much a $5/tire. In some cases of course, what comes off is usable.

I’ve seen anywhere between $5 to $20 per tire.

$20 a tire . . . . More than I expected. way more.
I wouldn’t want to do a set for $10 unless I was already really good at it and doing on the side.
$20 a set for a business sounds about as cheap as one could do them
$40 + a set seems very profitable.
