If you cancel your order and can wait a couple weeks, I'll bring mine down there on my way to Orlando and sell it to you for $75.

is it the same brand? the principle is the same with all tire changers, break the bead and pry off the tire.
i've done so many that cheap machines don't bother me.
i prefer using this tire iron than the one it comes with...

there are different methods to prevent scatches. make sure you use plenty of soapy water. i haven't scratched a rim yet.

remember the first time you used a hammer for the first time. it's very similar, once you use it enough times, it becomes second nature.
i've bent many a nails the first time i used a hammer.

It's that exact same setup... The tire iron that comes with it is also used as a bead breaker bar so it's like 4ft long and weighs 15lbs... Probably had a lot to do with my difficulties.

True story.

Like pumping my septic tank, colonoscopies and getting my pubes waxed, I find it worth the money to leave to the professionals.
