I like both the bud style and the Daytons.

If you were smart enough to build a bus, changing a Dayton style wheel and making it not wobble should not hard.

I did see a video on how to do it. It looked pretty much like balancing a bicycle wheel.

I remember changing Daytons on my dad's trailer when I was a kid. Biggest lesson for me was to loosen the lugs but leave them threaded onto the studs, then tap the wedges gently from the side (about a 3lb hammer did the trick) until they popped loose, THEN remove the lug nuts.

Those wedges are under a fair amount of pressure and can shoot off and through whatever's in front of them. The lugnuts stay threaded on until all the wedges can be wobbled by hand. After that, they're just another wheel IMO...

If you are VERY patient you can change a tire using a 1 inch impact and your bus air compressor. VERY patient.

Makita makes an electric impact 1" drive that goes to 768 ft lbs of torque
but it weighs 18.5 lbs and costs $700-$800. I prefer to go with a torque
multiplier lug wrench like this. Torque Multiplier Set Wrench Lug Nut Lugnuts Remover Labor Saving Semi Socket RV | eBay hash=item5417bfc1aa&item=361175695786&vxp=mtr
Even the grand kids can break them loose with one of these.

Do you have one of these? If so, how well does it work? Reviews on them are about 50/50. If it'll change one wheel one time (okay, two wheels for inner dual), it's paid for itself ten times. Just curious if it'll do it that one time when you need it...

Omg $80 for something you do so rarely that can be done with a t bar and a socket. Nice and simple.
