    I have not tried anything like the featured tyre changer i am still using tyre leavers and a large c clamp to break the bead it may be a wee bit easier with a tyre changer but the simple hand tools have always worked for me

    Have never seen this one, but a few years back I bought one online that puts the tire about chest height and the entire unit bolts to the floor. That last aspect is good, as you need a firm base to not only pop the bead, but to also wrestle the tire off the rim. My unit comes with a bead breaker, and tire remover and installer. Have done about half a dozen tires with it and it does a good job. I think it was under $200 with shipping. When I'm done using it, I take the 4 bolts out of the floor and move the unit to a storage area.
