Default Re: MoMar Tire Changer...worth it?

spoilsport.



there is also the "rock and a stick" method for practically nothing; http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...09776315225781.



a dedicated station probably saves 5-10 minutes/tire, but for 2-4 changes a year, a stick works just fine for breaking the bead, and even some friends with a machine end up sitting on the floor for working the bead on and off.

What do you know? You are a nobody, and you aren't an engineer. I need one of the really smart people to help me with this.

I have the harbor freight unit and use it about once a month. It really saves you a lot of money if you can use it with that frequency. Yes you'll have to change tires for your friends, but you can extract a price of beer and beef.

I prefer rounded off screwdrivers.

Oh yeah - almost forgot!



When you get the H-F "rim-clamp" setup, you'll have to turn the clamp "hooks" around the proper way - they come bass-ackwards for some reason (and having talked with several people who bought one, this seems to be Universal with these changers).



It's no biggie - a few bolts and you're good to go.

...dilauded, 5mg. After a few minutes you could care less about the tire, or anything else. Where's my cup of ice chips?
