Tire Change Station?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a manual tire changing station? Perhaps one where you can remove tires without the use of tire irons?

I am sick of bleeding knuckles...

huh?

Its pretty simple to make up a changing station but im not sure what you mean about no irons and bleeding knuckles. If you are bleeding you are doing something wrong. Changing tires is a art that is easy once learned but a bitch if you dont know the little tricks

I thought I saw a tire manual changer station that breaks the bead and removes the tire off the rim. Was that a dream???

Changing tires is a technique. Just keep watching videos and practicing.

And for me it was a big help to just take small bites with the tire irons and all was good.

Did 6 tires a few months ago and no bleeding knuckles or pinched tubes

small bites with 2 long tire irons over a home depot 5 gallon bucket is the ticket. :lol: Small irons work, but the longer ones make it too easy.

No bloody knuckles for me since I got the right tool for the job.

I've got a MSR tire changing stand and two Stubby Tire irons. I've changed the tires on my KX450 with black rims and never left a mark. I run Maxxis Desert IT's and they are the stiffest damn tires I've ever mounted and I manage to get them mounted with minimal effort. Once you learn the tricks its no problem.
