Changing tires

Post by prettybirdSE » Wed Nov 24, 2021 1:33 am


Bit the bullet today and bought a Kobalt 11 gallon compressor.Have a No-Mar tire changing platform coming as well...nice one.Should work great for tire changing.No more paying for changes,or dealing with my shop.'Free at last'.. :D

I got the mentality ... if someone is going to frig up my rims, may as well be me instead of me paying someone else to do it.

Yep.I already have one similar to that,with the 5 lug hub.(connects the wheel to the hub).It's a car hub,but of course it's a perfect fit.Can't remember what brand or model.I'm thinkin for a Mitsubishi?.Something like that.It's perfectly balanced so no problem getting the tire/wheel to correctly balance.Works excellent.(had it for my H2).

Probably a PT Cruiser hub. I have one but I prefer to use the cones. For anyone who's curious, a PT Cruiser
GMB 720-0061 Wheel Bearing Hub Assembly will work to hold the wheel if your balancer setup can't handle the large recess in the center of the wheel on the chain side. Available from Amazon.

Yes...that's the one.I do use the cones however.I couldn't get the two cones to not hit each other fully installed on the wheel.At least on my H2 rims.I've set it up for balancing,and MAYBE I did just use the cones.I can't remember just now. :doh:

I had to use that hub on my H2.I see now your right side cone is way bigger than my two I have.

Yes, the standard cones won't hold the wheel correctly so Marc Parnes sells additional cones specifically for the H2.

Found it to be one of my better investments.... :clap:

Changed/swapped four rears and a front so far on the Kawasaki.
FWIW..the optional NoMar cones fit the rear.
(If you click on the pic, it will come appear right side up :doh: )
