OK, I have 7 tires to change fairly soon. Both rigs plus the best left over as a spare for the currently bald spare on the 2010 Patrol. I'm strongly leaning toward the K28's which I understand create a bit of a challenge on their own. While I'm sure I could wrestle with 1 or two, taking on 7 is not high on my list of "things to tackle on the floor" so I thought a tire changing stand would be a reasonable investment. I did some searching on the forum and the only thing that seems to have a better consensus than "the best tire changer" is "the best oil"
What I have...
5 or 6 spoons laying around.
Static balancer... somewhere around here
Baja No Pinch tire putter oner
Couple of bead buddies
Feel free to suggest additional tools but my real question, is there a good tire changer stand/tool out there to help get me off the floor and improve results?
Considered building the wood stand featured on Gobium's youtube video.
I've looked at the harbor freight thing, my impression is I'd have to re-build it before using it.
Found this, which beats the floor but I don't see how the baja tire putter oner could work with it.http://www.amazon.com/MSR-Changing-Stan ... re+changer
What have you guys found that works well?
