Easier tire handling
A recent thread dealt with front tires losing air, and the headaches associated with tubes, patches, etc. When I need to work on anything other than a car size tire, I use this setup: It's simply an existing barn stair post braced well and fitted with a long 1/2" threaded rod and a large wing nut. Having the rim and tire braced against a solid backing makes it much easier to handle and enables me to break the bead using a very large C-clamp. I thought maybe showing the concept would make the job easier for someone else here.Always be willing to admit your shortcomings, there is no shame in not knowing how to do something. The shame is in NOT admitting you don't know how to do it.
If you have a small truck, limit yourself to small loads, if you want to carry the big stuff, get a big truck.
Never be ashamed of making a mistake. The only people who never (bleep) up are people who never try to do something new.
