Took the Plunge

I've been waffling about getting one of those "El-Cheapo" (well at least the Chinese equivalent) Harbor Freight Tire Changers. My "rim and muscle" method was getting a little old.

On a Whim, I went by HF Thursday. Turns out they have both the changer and Motorcycle attachment on sale $39.99 per piece.

I haven't put it together yet, but, since I need a front tire soon, I'll be testing it soon. Only bad part is I had to drive the truck Friday to go pick it up.

Is a $20.00 savings good enough for you?

By the way, the Charlotte HF still had 5 of the attachments, 10 of the changers.

Merry Christmas ! !

Depends on how far you need to drive la troca with the current price of gas...
But that was not really the question, was it?
