I could use longer irons for sure. The 6" minis are easy to pack but arent much for leverage. I will check out the bead breaker for sure.

Ok, let's shoot for 11 am then. That will give me some more time to drop my dog off at the sitter.

The irons are the bigger issue. The bead breaker isn't necessary if you've got a couple of 2x4 remnants laying around and an SUV frame for leverage, but it's cheap and handy. I think it's around 20 bucks on sale, worth every penny with a 20% off coupon.

How's it goin', whiteman?

You can also use a spoon to break the bead. Remind me sometime and I'll show you how.

Why not just make a video and post it on the YouTubes?

I have a monster vice I use to break bike and go cart beads. It's so big, I don't even have it mounted on a bench, just have it slapped on a receiver tube. For car and truck tires, a bumper jack works really well, the foot is curved just right to fit a rim.

For a long time, I used to change all my own tires by hand, then I learned the value of making friends with the guys at the tire shop 1/2 mile from your house. I drop by on christmas eve with a 12 pack, and haven't paid for a damn thing there in years.

This is technical stuff man! If it fell into the wrong hands.....





Plus I'd have to wait till I have a tire ready to be changed.

Sorry we never caught up with you Matt. I did get Lisa to try off roading the S10 for her first time on Riley Chapel over near the Walhog boyscout camp.

Great day to get out and ride.

I gave up on balancing my tires. I can never seem to get them balanced. I don't know if it's my balancer or what. Probably just my lack of patience...lol

I just get them close but not exactly balanced.
