ITS IN!

Got some goodies in today and decided to put them to use, they worked perfectly.

The tools
ITS IN!

Front wheel off
ITS IN!

Rear wheel off
ITS IN!

SUCCESS!!
ITS IN!

The whole process took me about an hour, that includes assembling the bead breaker and balancer.

Wheels are going to get some color tomorrow, my 90* Valve stems, (thanks to AGG) and some rubber for the track!

I see how you can "break the bead" and balance, but what do you use to remove the tire from the rim?

What's the weight limit on those stands? Or better yet just to be more simple, They'll take 580 pounds right?

If you're talking about the pitbull stands, I've read they're rated up to 1450lbs according to this site
