Yes, I've changed a few in my time. It was a lot easier to change a tire on the side of the road before it became the norm for them to be tightened with an air gun.
I remember being on the side of a not-so-busy road. I'd been jumping up and down on the damn lug wrench for a while and only managed to loosen three of the five lug nuts when a passerby pulled over to lend a hand. I think he initially thought I must be weaker than I looked but, when it took him another five minutes or so to loosen the last two lug nuts, he said he couldn't believe I managed to get the first three loosened by myself.
After asking him for his address and the name of his favorite beer, I was able to say "thanks" with a case. Gosh, that was a looooooong time ago!
