    This has been a really rough week for me. I lost my friend and neighbor last week and found out a family friend passed from ALS this morning. After my friends funeral today I decided some garage therapy was in order. Breaking down 5 tires off 16" wheels was pretty cathartic when you dont have a tire machine.

    Nice! Thats the way to deal with loss. Expend every ounce of ugly you feel on something productive, not destructive. Sorry for your loss.

    That's an ingenious method to change tires, sorry for the lost of your buddies.
    Every time I can't get in touch with my buddies I always think the worst

    Sorry for your losses!
    The first thing that came to my mind when I saw that beautiful Solution was, "I don't need no stinkin' Tire Changer!"
    Hope you have a productive weekend revkev6!

    I like when someone can do the job with the tools they have available. Some can visualize, some can not.

    Sorry for your losses. I can relate, I lost 6 close friends to me in Jan., one being my dad. It is good therapy to go out to the shop and do something physical.

    Very sorry for your loss. Sadly, I feel most of us here can relate to your sadness. Here’s hoping for good memories for you. Hopefully on a lighter note. I would hate to be those wheels and tires about now.

    Yes, everyone can relate to losing someone close to them. it just takes extra wind out of your sale when you lose so many in a short amount of time. Revkev did the right thing, took it out on some tires and kept or tried to keep his mind busy on other thoughts.

    I see new tires in the background waiting.

    Sorry to hear about your losses.
    I really like your bead breaker & will definitely try that method, as I don’t own a tire machine either.
