i have one of them cheap Chinese self tire mounting machines if you want to call it that... anyways i have done a few sets of atv tires on it and i was wondering if it could handle truck tires. im sure it wont handle breaking the bead, but i can do that with other techniques im sure. i figure i can save some money if i mount em myself and balance them with beads. they are 285 bfgs and going on 8" aluminum rims but i need to get them off the stock wheels first. also setting the bead, i have had success with a ratchet strap around the tire to push the sidewalls out on atv tires, but once again, good enough for a truck tire? or will i have to resort to the kerosene method...
