Tire machine

Taking 4 tires off the rims by hand really makes you have respect for technology. I'm getting new tires later this week and i got a deal on mounting and balancing, but the guy told me the rims had to have the old tires taken off before i got there. before you ask why i did it by hand, i was going to pay some one to do it but my dad bet me that i couldn't do it at home by myself. being a competitive person i agreed. the first two were extremely difficult, but once you figure out how to do it its really not to bad. all i used were 2 huge motorcycle tire irons. took about 1 1/2-2 hours.
