    Hello all, I have been recovering from a bad back and my wife has taken on some maintenance for me due to lift restrictions. She’s a keeper. She has a hell of a time lifting my wheels when swapping or rotating . Does anyone here have one of the dollies or tire lifts and can recommend one?

    A tire dolly just for lining up with the lug bolts?

    I use a pair of the cheap Northern Tool wheel jacks for pushing my trailer around the garage and also maintenance stuff. It works for both purposes.

    Yes for lifting, aligning with bolts and pushing on. How far does that get the tire off the ground, app.?

    Admittedly not far. Probably 4-5 inches max. Generally when I'm pulling tires I set my stands as low as possible- I like my tires to be about an inch above the pavement. :anonymous:

    Take to a local shop while your back heals. Maybe you’ll pay for one rotation.
