So,,,,,I said self, lets change a tire.
I try not to change them any more, so you are my hero.
The biggest I ever changed was on a 5 ton bridge truck in Vietnam. When the tire was stood up it stood about 5 feet tall.
I tore all the muscles on the right side of my lower back lifting it the wrong way. I never went on sick call for it, and consequently never got disability VA pension for it. Over the years it got worse and caused me early retirement from my job in manufacturing.
I lifted and changed others in the intervening years, but not any more.
