I bought one after i had tires mounted for an over priced work and they damaged the bead seals on 3 tires. Really like the tool and works very well ! even with freshly painted rims I can put the tires on with out scratching the paint work. I also bought the tire irons separate and really did not need them , I'm sure one day they will come in handy. Thanks for posting. maybe you could put together a small tutorial and post some pics for others.
Sore subject... I am lucky enough to drive past one almost everyday when I am working. (Worcester, Mass) so armed with my "Insider Club" $29.99 coupon, I bought the last one they had in stock. Too bad it was missing the part to break the bead's! I took the 2 hour round trip out to Warrick, RI in my Jeep to exchange it. I did check that one before I left!
That Insider Club is not half bad. It was thrown in free when I picked up my portable garage and so far, I have used it to save $15.00. The normal rate is $29.99 for the yearly membership. I would like to pick up a small press, so it may come in handy again! That and the 20% off coupons are always in my company car with me. You never know!
PS, Once I attach the base to the hitch extension and I can mount it to a trailer hitch... I may practice re-mounting a tire onto one of the rims. If I do that, I may video the removal and mounting so it can be uploaded to my You-Tube account and posted up here as well. :thThumbsU
