Me, spoons, and levers don't get along. I know a few people have hitch mounted changers, just wondering how they work and what they cost. Trying to find a good alternative to spoons without buying a $4000 machine.

Kory,

I used to wrestle tires ... mostly used c-clamps and wooden blocks...that is until Jack told me about these...

I know they are still irons...but they work GREAT!!

You can borrow them before you buy.

No Mar tire changer. This is the complete package, changer, balancer and all the tools to make it easier. http://www.nomartirechanger.com/Classic_Model_Tire_Changer_Ultimate_Package_p/tc-classic-ultimate.htm

I got the model that slides into a 2 inch receiver hitch.

I use to get tires done at the dealer. This paid for itself in 2 years.

That looks like what Frump and his buddies use. I've used it once, worked a lot better than my levers.
