Why when all you need is a couple of tire spoons and some elbow grease
Even a lot of tire and scooter places do it by hand on the 10 and 12 in wheels

Just the good old fashion fear of never doing it right before is all. I have some spoons (the tire kind not kitchen ones although I have those too) and will probably try it that way first but just curious of other options is all.

Post Re: Harbor Freight Mini-Tire Changer
I have not used the Mini-Tire Changer, but I do use the full size tire changer from HF. I use it mostly to break the bead.
It will help with getting the tire off/on the wheel, but the red tire spoon it comes with will mar the wheels. There is a website that sells a longer No-Mar Bar that functions really well compared to the HF version. Only issue is the high price for the no mar bar. In the end, I just use three of the longer motion pro spoons and some rim guards. It's still a PITA, but cheaper and more convenient than a shop doing it for you.
