Anything out there that does not cost a week's pay that will allow someone to change out there own tires, killing the need to visit a tire store??

I have a set of these from the old two wheeler days, but I am much lazier now.

I have a Tractor-Supply el-Manuel (in honer of chinco-de-mayo) changer. 40 bucks. But be warned, it will scratch the poo-poo......... Tire Changer Tool(s) 13435 out of your wheels if you don't have the ultra-secret Ridepate, used transport-conveyer-belt mod.......but then again, if you have stock-steelies, scratch 'em!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No really it works fine besides the center-piece. I have saved at least 2-million dollars using this fine piece of equipment........ allright

Thats a butt load of rubber changing pate. If everybody else in the world used that tire changer that would save at least 3 million dollars. I didnt know you were fluent in the Spanish. I think this is Spanish, smartarse ['smɑ:tɑ:s], smart ass/arse n fam vulgar listillo,-a, sabelotodo

Sorry I jacked your thread DD.

I have literaly changed hundreds of tires for years with a bead breaker from James Lucky, http://www.jlatvproducts.com/. It is adjustable and sometimes works when an air actuated bead breaker won't work. I then use tire irons from motion pro that are curved on one end. Remember to use lube, I prefere simple green, it cleanes up easily.

Notice that the side in the pic the first bead was mounted from the outside , or the widest step inside the rim. The only way it would have went on would have been to sawsall it and mount it and then super glue the tire back together. Lesson learned.

DD like Josh said a good bead breaker gets the hardest part out of the way then the "spoon tools" will get r done.

i use 2 old tire spoons and a hammer. it takes a little work but i can change a set of ATV/UTV tires in about an hour. dismount and mount. poping the bead on the rim is the hardest part most of the time.

That harbor freight setup is fine for other tires, but won't break the bead on a atv tire. I bought one and bent the piss out of the tool. Never broke the bead. Broke the tool though.
