Doesn't everyone have a hoist?  HeHe.  I waited years to get to where I could manage that purchase, of course.
  But why would you need a tire machine if you have spare wheels and tires?  Or is it too much work to switch?  Before hoist, I did it in the driveway on jackstands for quite a while.

  Well, at the time I wasn't concerned at all really, as it looked like
they hit the jack points okay, though the cups on those jacks were
quite large, like coffee cup saucers so I wondered if they were
hitting anything besides the jack point, but ultimately... well, let's
put it this way, I haven't even been bothered enough about it to go
inspect it.

It was just funny to see it in the air like that and when I read about
the other Dave's concern about having anyone touch his car, I
identified with that and it reminded me of the tire experience,
because I was wondering the whole time how much expense and trouble it
would be to have my own tire machine.

Where the heck I'd put it is a whole 'nother deal. As it is, I have
stacks of bagged tires/wheels in the corners of my living room with
Indian... er Native American blankets thrown over them, serving quite
nicely as cat condos.
