What a nice sunny Sunday, I decided to install my tires on the Grom OEM Gold rims.
I bought the No-Mar Jr Pro system a couple of years ago at the San Mateo International Motorcycle show that comes every Nov. I got the system with both the hitch mount and the stand mount.

Trying to figure out the proper way to install the tire on a small rim was a challenge but I manage to install the darn tire. Biggest problem was trying to figure out what amount of tire lube I should put on the tire and rim.

the Gold painted cushing unit for the rear tire color does not match so I have to ride around to the various auto/paint shop and see if I can get a paint that is close to the OEM Gold rim color

I painted the second set of stock exhaust shield silver but this time I taped off a small black section that goes down towards the ground since the first shield that I painted that small section that goes down wards made the exhaust shield look too FAT for the style of the Grom.

I have the bigger no-mar mounted to a pallet. it was an ABSOLUTE BEAR doing my nsr's 12" tires. to the point I switched to spoons because I kept breaking tips.

the no-mar rule with lube is "more can't hurt" just don't put it on the bead. drop center needs lube, the "upper" lip of the wheel needs lube

btw, I also have a tundra :) I think we share a very similar taste in vehicles and tools :)
