Not sure if this has been tried, but it seemed pretty simple. It takes about 2 seconds to break the beads. Then I just use my Three small 9" tire irons to remove & re-install the new or good used tire. It's nice to get a tire changed 24/7.

You got that right!!! I use a Harbor Freight tire changer because I can't wait for a dealer, or local shop to work me in, (Besides, on tire change paid for the unit.)

Your system looks great! Really nice and innovative job!

Thanks for sharing it.

What did you for the parts that engage the wheel, aka rim clamps?

I used 1/4'' round bar to make "forks" that the spokes lay in. I use a tie-down strap to hold the wheel secure. I have since put clear tubing over the rods to protect the finish. It sure beats wrestling the wheel while on your knees.
Maybe this pic helps...

tire changer

I got a Habor Freight changer delivered for under $100 = We've (my buddy and I) have changed dozens of tires on it. Works great for what I paid. My buddy's made a few $$$ to stick in his pocket. We use dyna beads in all the tires, to date no problems, smooth as silk.

It seems that the motorcycle tire changer adaptor is no longer available from Harbor Freight. Does anybody know where I can get one?I have the bottom piece and have been looking for a while now.
