    Problem Solved: Tire dismounting 15\" wheels

    I've got 38" Denman Ground awgs on 15" steelies. How hard would it be to dismount them myself?

    The hard part is breaking the beads loose. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif A tire machine will make that job WAY easier. I've mounted 35x12.50x15 BFG Muds at home, but taking them off is a lot harder. I found a local place that would do it for $2 each, so I let them have at it! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Wish I lived near you. $10 a tire here /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif. What did you do to break the bead? Can I do this with a crowbar? OR do I need one of those "special" tools"?

    Some places here wanted $10 each also. But I just kept calling around and found the place that does it for the $2 that it really should cost. It takes less than 1 minute per tire with a tire machine.

    Lay the tire on the ground under your bumper, put your Hi-Lift's base on the sidewall and start jacking. Before you do this don't forget to remove the core from the valve stem.

    I was going to poke fun at you but I'll save that for a later date ok?
    If you have a High Lift Jack you can use that to pop the bead How do you ask well you put the tire on the ground and put the Jack on the edge of the rim not on the rim mind you. Then raise the part of the jack that you would put under the bumper and put that under the bumper as you move the jack handle the presser will pop the bead. Do you have a Idea on how this will work now? /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Problem solved guys. Wally World has saved thy arse again. $3.50 per tire for mounting/dismounting. And they dont care how big the tires are /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. If youre in Maryland near Baltimore or Annapolis the Walmart at Arundel Mills has a tire center in it.

    Maybe that's where I should go. I just spent $40 to get two tires mounted and balanced.

    I guess I can't copy/paste that and I sure as hell can't type it from my keyboard, but you get the point.
