Death while Changing a Tire is common.

Please exercise extreme caution..
A tire or wheel rim is NOT worth your life!!!
These videos may seem humorous, but the danger is REAL, as the last google link clearly shows!!!

I now use a 40" pipe, a 3/4" breaker bar end, and a 6" extension with either 17mm or 19mm six point socket on the end.

Leverage and ease so i don't kill myself.

Actually, none of those videos seem humorous - they seem tragic and sad. I'm surprised GoodYear would 'go there' in terms of advertising...

Having seen the slow deterioration, and the effects on his family, after a friend of the family made one foolish decision climbing under his car...

Please all, be safe!
