    Does anyone know some tricks to dismounting Swampers? The tires are 35x15x15 on 15x12 rims.
    Thanks,
    Nate

    yup that should work...we use a highlift instead of a bottle jack but it will do the same thing

    1. Remove the valve core and use a beadbreaker.

    2. A couple fat kids, four tire irons, sore knees, and a removed valve core.

    3. A fat kid, four tire irons, sore knees, and a vacuum pump.

    4. A jack between the bottom of your workbench and the tire.


    I don't think there is a trick to it. It's a chore no matter what. The worst I've done is 33x13.50s on 15x8s. The funny part was those 13.50s kept their donut shape after we got them off the wheels.

    throw a board on the tire next to the bead then slowly drive on to it until the bead breaks.
