Hey there, i have all the tools necessary to remove my tire from the rim...except one. What would you guys advise to use to protect the rim from my tire levers?? I was told that the $5 plastic guards are junk. Any advice?
I've used my buddies No-Mar changer with the demount bar and the plastic clamps you put on the rim as you move around. No scratchs on the rim, works great. Mega $$$$. He said you can buy the Harbor Freight changer and just buy the bar from No-Mar and have pretty close to the same setup for a lot less money.
i have the harbor freight tire changer. works decent. i bought the tire clamps the "extra hands" they hold the bead down below the rim, helps when mounting. im going to buy the no mar mount/demount bar sometime. but thats a $100 bucks.
