I considered getting a tyre machine thingy, not so sure about fitting back new tyres tho scratch

I think Spanner Man is the best to advise on this, but just levers would be hard work to use i would imagine!

get yourself a bead breaker, some tyre irons and rim protectors are you are laughing. You can always take the tyres to a shop for balancing

I forgot, you will need a fairly powerful compressor to seat the tyre (for tubless anyway).

Tyre soap is also a big help. Goodluck

it deffo works out cheaper in the long run, and you can help out others too and earn yourself a drink clown just a note... 12" tyres are a byaaaach to change lol

as you know i change my own tyres and done a set of yours with tyre levers, wd40 to lubricate the tyre endge to make it easier, i break the bead on the heavy duty vice in the garage and i got a compressor to inflate the tyre to about 60psi so it gets bedded onto the rim correctly.

however you were one of the few who's rims i managed to scratch in the process Evil or Very Mad
