Sure wish I'd had this turnbuckle the last time I mounted some tires on split rims. Not totally my idea but I found this 8 inch turnbuckle on eBay for about $12.00, including shipping, and sure makes mounting a tire a LOT easier. Turn and shorten the span then when tire is mounted just reverse and extend and easy as that. Much easier than the original rim spreader for sure. Works for me.
yea i use a ratchet strap. philip
The good thing about the turnbuckle is that it easily pulls in then will push out when you have the tire in place.
Very good idea !
Nice it should expand the rim to
