yeah little bro did a number on the lexus wheel and tire... as aksracing (dad) said, the whole process took less than 10 mins and was actually pretty easy. the tire changer itself took about an hour (just because we had no measurements and only an idea) to build, but if we had to make another one (you know, if someone might want one) it probably wouldnt take 30 mins to fab up. (also this one looks rough because it hasnt been prepped/painted yet)

Nice job on the bead breaker (not tire changer). You are using spoons and muscle to change the tire.

My only concern is that in pics 1 and 2 it seems as if you are putting all the load on the brake rotor. It would be even worse with a front wheel with larger diameter rotors.

it looks deceptive, there is a towel on the bottom of the base right now to protect the lip of the wheel, but there is a gap of about 1" between the rotor and the ground. (the "axle" takes the load, no other parts in the center of the wheel touch anything) (only the outer lip of the wheel touches anything)

we balance them with a static balancer (basically a rod on low-friction bearings thru the axle bearings) you spin it slowly till u find the low spot (or heavy spot) and add weight accordingly

I went the more expensive route and sprung for the No Mar. I've used one and really liked it so had to have one. Just got it and have not had a chance to use it just yet. Anyone around the NE side need a tire change let me know.

Good job on making your own changer.
