I GOT TIRED OF PUTTING UP WITH TIRE SHOP'S, SO FOR THE LAST YEAR I'VE BEEN MOUNTING AND PATCHING MY OWN TIRE'S. THIS TOOL HAS BEEN A GREAT INVESTMENT BUT I HAD TO MODIFY IT FOR KNOCKOFFS. WORK'S GREAT WITH SOME EXPERIENCE. JUST THOUGHT I'D SPREAD THE IDEA :cool:

IT WORK'S FINE IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH TIRE'S. I BOLTED IT TO A SHEET OF PLYWOOD SO I CAN MOVE IT OUTSIDE FOR BETTER LIGHTING. IT ALSO HELP'S ALOT TO HAVE SOMEONE HELP WHEN BREAKING THE SEAL SINCE YOU HAVE TO PRESS DOWN ON THE BEAD BREAKER AND HAVE IT TAPPED WITH A HAMMER TO GET IT DEEP BETWEEN THE RIM AND TIRE. I SMASHED A COUPLE FINGER'S THE FIRST TIME BUT NOW IT'S EAZY.

I BOUGHT MINE FROM ,NORTHERN TOOL AND EQUIPMENT. IT WAS ABOUT 80 BUCK'S WITH SHIPPING. IT WORK'S BEST WITH STOCK WHEEL'S. THESE LOWRIDER TIRE'S ARE VERY STIFF SO MAKE SURE TO USE SOME LUBE WHEN MOUNTING SO YOU DON'T RUIN THE TIRE. I BOLTED A KNOCKOFF ADAPTER ON IT TO HOLD DOWN THE WHEEL.

I bought this bitch a week ago and put it together this morning and need some more info,I put the adapter on and was wondering did you cut the nut bar off and put a bolt and nut on it instead and how did you tighten down the wheel with the adapter in the way?I was thinking about cutting the xo shaped hold down and welding it a little higher on the srew bar,but befor I jump to it, I wanna know what you did,and yes ,its already bolted down to a concrete slab in my backyard..........

Just did that,Had to cut off the stud bar,but how did you get it to tighten down because when you try to tighten it down it hits the adapter and not the hub?Unless you cut off 1/2" down on the threads of the adapter,I think Im gonna do that.........

some plastic strips I added to mine, i run vintage stuff so I do this with front of rim facing down so nothing ever touches my babies. These are great if you have more time than money and hate letting minimum wage workers touch your expensive rims!!!

Anything beats metal on metal I have tons of this stuff around work so thats why I used it, Its actually softer and more durable than it looks.

that just seems like alot of work for the 5 bucks a tire shop charges? and looks like it would scratch the rim up? what about inflating? thats the hard part......
