Default tire installation

wondering if its worth spending 200 bucks on tire installation at a shop, or is it easy enough to do it at home, the one thing im worried about is getting the rear tire one right. I've only done shaft bikes, this is my first belt drive. i may pay the 60 they want to mount the tires, but 200 to do it on the bike? Thats hard to swallow. I'm handy, pretty sure i could manage the dis assembly, a friend has tire spoons so he could mount them for me so im just wondering the best path. and easiest lol

If you can get the bike off the ground pull the axle and drop the tire. If you don't mess with the axle adjusters the axle will go back in the same place and all will be well.
If you did it on a shaft bike you can do it on a victory
