Ok, now you've got me all nervous. Please find a link to a picture of a
_real_ tire iron and post it! :-)
(Also changed tires by hand, but we used big screwdrivers, what _we_
called tire irons (socket on one end, screwdriver flat thing on the other,
90 deg. bend, etc.), prybars, 2x4's, etc.... :-)
Then there's the tire irons I use with tire machines...
