Anyone have one of these to change your own tires? Does it do the job? It says it will accommodate ATV tires. I've done a bunch of dirt bike tires with irons but I know ATV tires need something to break the bead.

I use a farm jack and the hitch on my pickup to break the bead. After that it's easy.

I went ahead and bought one fairly cheap since I had a 20% off coupon. I mounted it to a 6x6 post out in my pole barn. It didn't hold the rim as solid as I would have liked but it worked, had both tires bead broke in about 30 min with some elbow grease. For me that was the easy part. Spent another 3 hours struggling to get the tires off and the new ones back on and getting them inflated. They were extremely tight, felt like the wrong size tire but they were right. Also couldn't get them to inflate, had to use isopropyl alcohol and a lighter to inflate them lol. Worked great although I had a water hose on standby and had to put out a small fire on them.
