    Recommend a manual tyre changer?

    Anyone bought/got one in their home garage? I'm in no rush but I'm thinking of getting one before the batteries in my TPMS sensors finally give up, being able to remove the tyres and work on fitting new batteries at my leisure basically,...ideally it would also be able to handle the wheels/tyres on our 4 wheeled vehicles too. :002:

    I'm looking at something similar to this, although this one states that it's only suitable for steel wheels, is that because of the shape/design of those 3 hooks?

    Here in the UK I've found something similar and more to my budget, great video of it in use too.

    I have used the No-Mar tire changer for years. Once you get the technique down tire changing is quick and easy.

    Digital, that looks pretty sweet.  Like how it's compact.  Does it work as well/easy as the video shows?

    Yes, it works well, the only thing is like all tire dismantling machines is to protect before inserting tools, it is to protect the rim since as we know the trophy rim is delicate to scratch the rim.

    It must be taken into account that apart from needing the machine to disassemble the tires, it will also be necessary to have the machine to balance the wheels.

    I have a max2h with balancing  machine. It's hard work with the gt spec tyres our bike needs. For me it's more for the convenience than any thing else.

    That's my way of thinking too, owning tools/equipment that will get you out of a jam on say a Sunday when no one is open are great to have.

    I'm still having to ride around on the temporary plug I fitted due to having to rely on others, if I had the equipment I could have fixed this ages ago.
