The Thunderbird Commander is some work.

I have a manual tire changer I purchased form Harbor freight, took me two seasons to modify it to my liking.
Also have a Mojo Lever, nice piece of kit. and a balancer.

Last mount I used Ride On tire sealant in the tubeless Avons.
Three reasons, no balancing, tire puncture protection and cooler running longer tire life.

It' doesn't appear the tire life will be extended by the looks of the wear. However the balancing with the product was great.

Where did you purchase the MoJo lever. I tried to make one but had trouble getting a phenolic / nylon end for the remount to hold up to the leverage.
