As promised, I have some photos of my new tire changer in action....Actually still shots as I couldn't video and work on the tire at the same time.
1st let me say I have been looking for a changer for some time, but wanted something with the 3 jaws like this one has. I did have a little trouble keeping the wheel solid and not rotate when I removed the tire.
I was afraid to really crank down on the clamping mechanism as I didn't want to bend the wheel or break the thing the very 1st tire.
I used a vise grip on the wheel solid against one of the jaws and that kept the wheel from spinning.
Any way, this was probably the easiest tire I have ever broke down, and removed, then remounted. I am sure it will get easier as I use it and also mount it on something a little more solid.
Enough rambling, so here are the pictures!
