    I am inquiring for further explanation since it is not clear in your feedback to me what you are saying.. I hope the video helped you to see that tire is placed on the tire lift and can be rolled to the car. I am not sure what is meant from the ground. However, the tire lifts the tire by moving the handle up and down. What is beneficial to the user is that the user in placing the tire on the lugs at this time does not hold the tire up while aligning it with lugs. This saved wear and tear on the arms, back,and legs because you do not have hold the tire while aligning it to the lugs. There are three alignment features to the Samson Tire Lift, the swivel wheels, the rollers that the tire sits on, and the lift handle raises the tire from the ground up as the tire sits on the tire lift. Last of all, the video is a visual as to how the tire lift works. This a friendly request for more feedback in what you are telling me. I am not sure if I really understand what you are saying to me. Thank you for your consideration
