Infrequently, and only after buying LOTS of drinks.

I've had one since 2007 and lost track of how many sets of tires I've changed with it. Yes, there is some cost for the initial purchase, but how much does it cost you to take wheels off and take them to a dealer for changing?

I'm too lazy so I bought a pneumatic tire changer have had it for 3 years and that is my most precious tool I own. I cannot live without a tire changer. But I have a buddy that owns the nomar and it works well!

Check out the cycle hill version of this if you havent already. Made by the same company but aimed more for us diy guys cheaper as well. Where the Nomar line is aimed towards the commercial use. Ive also looked into it as well and will more than likely get one in the end.

If done right rims shouldn't get scratched at all.. People are just lazy and try to get it done and over because its not their bike..

I used to work in a tire shop and for a custom shop after high school... Trust me when people have rims worth more than your car even your house payment you put brand new low pro tires on there is a proper way to do it.


But like all specialized stuff $$

Sounds like a tool that someone came up with in the back yard. I've seen it at motorcycle shows a while back. It works but only down side is you can't balance it.

If balancing is your only concern, buy a static balancer and get a much better balance job than a machine spin balance anyway. The NoMar is a very, very well built product with a specific purpose. Sure, if you are mounting and balancing tires for a living (read.....motorcycle shop), there are certainly quicker ways to do tires, such as pneumatic machines. The NoMar is for small shops, home owners, etc. I would guess that in the six seasons of my ownership, I have used it to change at least 100 tires. Imagine how much $$$$ that would have cost at a dealership.

A buddy and I drove up to St Louis this summer and picked one up. We just change tires for friends and strangers from craigslist and have quickly repayed the initial cost.

By no mean I'm saying it's not well built, just the name "No-Mar" threw me off. Balancing the tires should go hand in hand with the mount, dismount machine. I don't see myself riding an unbalanced tires after changing it out. I'm just picky.

The whole purpose of this awesome tool. Is to change tires quickly!! Really useful on the track. And what I'm thinking about is , I can make a few bucks on the side this season by changing my buddies tires and charging maybe 20-30 bucks or so. If u get the hitch mount. U can basicly go anywhere with it and change tires

no. but all you need is a piece of 2x2" square tubing, and then a piece of round tubing that fits inside (or outside) the changer post, then you weld the 2 together. i have the hole drilled to put the hitch pin into the square stock, and then drilled a bunch of different height holes in the round stock so that the tire changer height can be adjusted in case its installed on a tall or short height hitch.

i will ask my buddy if he took any pics of it. i know i never thought of it at the time

Yea, the NoMar = No marring of your wheels because nothing that touches them is metal. As far as balancing goes, the machines that have the built in balancer, like at a motorcycle shop, do NOT do as good of a balance as static balancers. Trust me, I am very particular about riding on a balanced wheel/tire setup. I just finished up doing 14 track days this year and my wife did the same amount.........so balanced tires/wheels are VERY IMPORTANT, not to mention the tires for the street bikes.

I bought a Marc Parnes balancer rod/assembly and built my own stands. Another high quality product and it gives you a perfect balance job if you take your time and do it correctly.

The Dunlop supplier for AMA uses static balancers at the track. Just sayin.

I've had a No-Mar bolted to the floor of my garage for years. I also own their static balancer. If you know what you're doing its hard to beat. The only complaint I have is on my "classic" model the breaker bar bent when I got in a hurry trying to break the bead on tires. I've since had it reinforced and learned that steady even force can be as affective at breaking the bead as mongo in a hurry.

If you are doing it right with proper tricks and technique, it really doesn't take much of any force. My buddies 105lb wife uses the no-mar regularly.

I used one for a few years, works great. Changing sportbike tires is a breeze, but changing sport touring and harder carcass tires is definitely a workout! We used to let the tires warm up in the sun before trying to install them to soften up the rubber.

Expensive investment, but it will pay for itself once you become proficient using it.
You're gonna need the no-mar tire bar also.

A friend of mine bought one and does everyone I know's tires, and come's to your house for $20 a set. Best deal around, and he makes a few bucks to pay for racing expenses.

If I didn't have him I would probably buy one.
