tire changing pics

Using a harbor freight tire changer with the motorcycle attachment and a no-mar bar.
i have changed maybe 12 tires out using just the harbor freight tool and some spoons. Man that is tough work,
So i bought the no-mar bar and decided to knock the dust off and try again.
500% easier.
before i could spend and hour on a tire, with mucho cussing.
with the no-mar, maybe 5 minutes getting tire off and 5 minutes getting new one on, and that is using the tool for the first time.
really like

a link to some pics if i did this right
