Default Winter tire stud installation tool

Just wondering if any members have a tire stud install tool. I've got to do a set of 4 tires for my sons car. I'll bring the beer and will do your tires too if someone has one.

I'm looking online but so far pricey.

most places will do them for $30 ish a tire.... probably better to have it done professionally.

Having done mine with the pneumatic tool a few times, if someone actually can do it for $30 a tire that is the way to go.

Pretty sure Can tire did mine for $20 each, but mind you I bought them there too with the rims. As long as they haven't been used at all, take them in somewhere and have them done. Keep your eyes on kijiji, there's some used tire shops that stud for cheap.

Let me know if you know of any places. I'll call around starting tomorrow.

I might buy a unit depending on the feedback I get calling around and start doing some tires for forum members, friends, etc to offset the price of the unit.
