User comments/reviews

"Excellent DVD. This is, by far, the best tire changing video I have viewed. The information provided has already saved me both time and money. Highly recommended." AmeRetired on Amazon.com

"Wish I'd seen Grants tips on puncture repairs & tyre changing before - could have saved a few scraped knuckles." M Loveluck on Amazon.co.uk

"Excellent, Informative and a must-watch! I recently bought this DVD to help with fixing tires while on the go. The DVD is very well made and to the point. It comprehensively covers repairs and changes for tubed and tubeless tires. I certainly got many pointers regarding patch types and a couple of tricks too. I would certainly recommend this DVD for anyone who wants to learn more about fixing their tires. With a little bit of practice, you could save yourself an expensive trip on a tow truck!" xtrg, on Amazon.com
