So how hard is it really?

So how hard is it really to change your own tires? I watched this guy on youtube do it in 15 min by himself..

the more i watch the vid the more I wanna go to home depo and build what he built and do it myself..

and now I can't find the video on youtube to link but it was pretty cool he had like a 4x4 smash down to pop the tire halfway off n stuff.

It's easy with the right equipment. Harbor freight has a tire changer with a motorcycle wheel adaptor that was selling last year for under $150. Doesn't take long to pay for itself. If you want better get a "No Mar" changer. We found 6 guys that were willing to invest in one. Each paid $100 and now only 2 of us ever use it. It spends most of its time in my garage.

worth it

its alot easier..time and money wise to dismount the rim and tire from the bike and take it to a shop....its around 15 bucks to mount a tire if you take the rim instead of puting it in the shop for a new tire

Its like riding a bike... Do it once you'll know how for life.

Hardest part is breaking the bead.. I have been changing mine for years and years.

Sure, I'll show you how it's done. That wasn't the original question. You asked if it was easy and it is once you've done it a time or two and have the right equipment.
