i need to get the 9 nine t wheels power coated, which means i need to get the tyres off, only to have to fit them back on again once complete a week later.
so have been looking at the tyre changers that appear in my online search.

as i have 3 bikes already thinking saving £50 a pop by fitting these myself could make its money back in a couple of years.

although not sure how good they actually are, and am i likely to just f**k my wheels!

been changing my own tyres for a couple of years ... paid for itself in a few months

OLMAXMOTORS tyre changer is my tool of choice.. and a small compressor to bead the tyres
nothing touches the rim, i've never marked a rim.. (one set of my wheels are carbon)

on a trackday i can pop tyres off and on quicker than walking to the tyre man


cheers for the info R1ch.

i took down to the bike place round corner in the end, but still something i am considering, as i am sure will get plenty of use
