One evening last year I helped Jimmy Lewis prep 40 wheel sets for the HP2 for the 1000. It took about 2 hours, and Jimmy schooled me on the proper way to swap Karoos. Basically no work stand, hold the wheel upright between your knees, only use 2 small irons (6" aluminum) and make sure the tire bead stays in the relief. All said, took about 2 minutes for him to mount the tire, which included 2 rim locks. It still takes me 10...

He said if you need bigger irons, you're not keeping the bead all the ways in the relief.
