We have a few Golf carts/utility vehicles at work. For years, we replace rim & tire, and they don't last long. A lot of waste is created. I wanted to get better tires that would replace the typical 18x8.5-8 tires that these carts use. We have been replacing them with Higher speed tires that would last longer. We have started removing those tires and replacing with 215/60-8 size tires and it works great.
The Stark tire changer does work. I used it recently to replace a 15" rear tire on my Honda cruiser without much issues. The three rim hooks securing the wheel are on the weak side, making the wheel spin during operation. To counter this, I dropped a long metal pipe down the rim to stop the spin, making work much more efficient. The unit came with nuts and bolts to secure the top spreader to the base but doesn't include concrete anchors. Drop by a hardware store, and get some 3/8 inch wedge anchors, and you're good to go. The Stark tire changer is a go!
This thing is sweet changed 4 15" trailer tires in about 45 min after figuring out the first tire. But ya gota release the rim befor you pump up the tire or the tire pinches the grips against the rim and it won't come off. Might wants bolt or down or just throw your leg against it and wear it out.
I was looking at some of the cheaper tire machines and came to the realization that they would not be able to do all the different wheels I have. I removed, patched and reinstalled a pair of four wheeler tires. Works great. I love it. Don't be fooled by the less expensive machines. There usefulness is limited.
I did what most of you probably did and you-tubed this tire machine before I bought it. Believe me when I say those guys make it look easy... UNTIL you figure it out. two notes i learned the hard way: (I used this on atv tires) I put a strap around the base and then through the wheel to hold it in place when breaking the bead so it didn't slip out towards me AND when putting the tires back on use the bar that comes with the kit to get it started and then another bar or spoon to crush down the tire opposite of the bar and hold it in place to get the last quarter of the tire on the rim.. essentially have a bar in both hands one of which pushing down and it'll go on with no problem if you just use the bar with the kit you'll fight it until you've bent it..
