Tire changer that WORKS!

Post by ride dont hide » Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:52 pm



I am just the typical DIY home mechanic with a small repair shop at home. I was looking for a tire changer and came across the NoMar line. Ordered the CH-200 series and this thing is the BOMB! Replaced the rear tire on a 2014 FLHTC Harley and the rear on my 83 'Wing. Sooo easy! If anyone is looking to do the same you cant go wrong with the CH-200. No more spoons, cussing or bleeding! Love it!

You might want to take a look at the No-Scuff Tire Tool to make installing the tires on the larger wings easier.

I never had much trouble mounting a tire..it was always removing one from the rim...
That is till I realized I didn't want the old tire anyways.
Easy removal is to break the bead first then simply cut the sidewalls.Remove the carcass and the bead pulls off by hand.

Not me, I usually take a grinder or cutting tool and cut around the rim removing the rims lip, then I slip the tire off with out any fuss :shock: place the new one in and JB weld it closed...works good.... :lol:

I must have been watching your YouTube videos because that's exactly how I do it.

As long as I have the money for a new tire and $40 I will have them mounted. I've done it and the experience will not be repeated. Even if I had $700 for the tool.
