Im looking to get a tire changing tool and looking to see which one you guys like.  I have looked into the harbor freight, MSR, and moose model....

gently clamp your axle in a vise upright, using wood blocks set your wheel on it, or use a 5 gal bucket, 2 easy tire stands w/ stuff you probably already have.

I prefer a milk crate. makes it easy to put a knee on the tire to push it into the low spot of the rim.

A buddy of mine bought a stand last year  similar to the above link.  I just use a 5 gallon bucket.  There's some tougher tires where I see how his stand would be nice, but 95% of the time I don't really notice a difference.  It's really in your technique how easy or hard a tire change is.

I got a moose one. It works great. Just don't tell people about it, next thing you know you're the tire changing guy and you have a bunch of new friends.
