Tire Changer

Does anyone have any experience with the Cycle Hill tire changer?

http://www.cyclehilltirechanger.com/products/home

It looks to have some similar features of the No-Mar machine to protect the wheels and it's a bit cheaper.

I think that is a Nomar.Go into prices and scroll down to the packaged item.

Here is the response I got from Cycle Hill:

"We are the manufacturer of both brands. YOu may call the office at 636-326-5999 m-th 6am 4:30 pm central time this week with questions."

So I guess the answer is, they're the same only different. They share the No-Mar patented Mount/Demount bar and some other components.

But that still begs the question, Does it work as well as the No-Mar changer that everyone seems to really like.

No experience with that unit but since you're asking about cheaper options to the NoMar, I'll throw this out there as a good cheap option.
  • Get the Harbor Freight tire changer
  • Dip the wheel clamps in Plasti Dip (protects the rim and prevents it from sliding)
  • Use a Mojo Lever to mount/demount the tires (won't scratch the rim)
I've been using this setup for a few years now. It's cheap, works well, and doesn't do any damage to the wheels.

Me and my buddies bought the Cyclehill, no complaints here. We've changed about 7 tires already since we've picked it up in March. So far we've rotated the unit among a couple of garages. Easy to transport from place to place. We all feel it was a very good investment.

I ended up the the Cycle Hill changer and saved about $300 over a No-Mar. It uses many of No-Mar's components. Breaking the bead is done on the ground as opposed to up on the changer but besides that they're pretty much the same.

3 more tire changes and this baby is paid for.
