    I brought a tire inside since it's so cold outside the rubber felt more like steel. Now that its inside and warmed up, I'm wondering if I should just mount it up right there in the kitchen.

    I know I'd be in deep sheet for doing that. Prybar or something would invariably slip, resulting in carnage in the kitchen and a very unimpressed wife with my luck.

    as a matter of fact....!

    Yes--I actually DID mount some tires in the kitchen --sink !!--and in the bathtub too,a few times!..I had a bunch of garden carts to fix, a local cranberry grower wanted new solid rubber tires mounted on the rims (looked just like a kids tricycle tires and rims!)..according to the mounting instructions,I had to soak the new solid rubber tires (they were green!:haha: ) in hot water for 15 minutes,then they would be pliable enough to stretch into place without damaging the tire or rim..it worked slick!..


    Oh well,at least now I know how to change tricycle tires...:rolleyes:


    I know how tough cold tires can be..you haven't lived until you've spent an cold day in the junkyard,picking up old rims with petrified bias ply 6-8 ply tires, full of ice,that feel more like concrete than rubber,and put them into a rim crusher to get the tires off!..then have to toss the rims into a dump truck,and the tires into another pile..and fill 1-2 trucks a day!..all for 100 bucks of scrap per load roughly...:( ..one job there I don't miss much..:rolleyes: :crazy:

    I didn't know until now how good of a lubricant Pam cooking spray is.

    Not my apron. Frankly, I don't even know why it's there. No one in this house uses it that I've seen.

    It would b cjeaper to pay someone to mount the tire than to pay for the divorce.

    Haha... can't get divorced if your not married.

    See, all girls that meet me would know things like this would happen quite often. Oh wait... maybe thats one of the reasons I'm still and have always been single. :doah:

    They love it when the best pans are missing only to be found under your truck full of various oils.
