Need lower price on tire changes in ABQ area, or may do it myself..

There's a nice shop very near where I live here in the East Mountains, but they charge $50 to change a tire. Anyone know of someone in the ABQ area who will do a good job for less? I'm about to the point of investing in tire changing equipment myself. Thinking about going with the Harbor Freight setup. Anyone had any experience with these? Thanks!

There's a place on Zuni, just west of San Mateo called High Velocity motorsports (i think that's the name...) and if you take the wheel in, they'll change the tire for 20 bucks. I gave the guy a 10 dollar tip because he did it as soon as I walked in. Balanced perfectly too.

I should mention that that was almost a year ago, so prices may have changed...
