Brilliant!    Here's a video of how it's used - not the Sealey one but one just like it.

Over ten years too late for that for me!

Don't be so pessimistic!

I also cracked 70 a few months ago and can still do the alloy wheels on my TR7. Maybe bigger wire wheels on earlier TRs are heavier?

Nevertheless maybe TRR might do something to recognise us old F*rts.

I wasn’t being pessimistic, I was just stating a fact. I can still do wheels although I will admit that the ones on my Merc are a bit of a challenge. I had to change one recently when I had a puncture.

Hi Pinky,

 a little late but send the tyre lift back and buy a Mini inner tube.

Deflate the tube, position under the wheel, inflate, remove wheel from studs - easy peasy.

Install is the opposite

If you are concerned about how slow it is you can have a cuppa.

When not being used for tyre fitting you can go floating across the Solent.

Thank you roger, 

You always come up with a good idea, as for using  it to cross the solent, they might think I am an illegal
