    This was the only way I could think of to remove 4 tires in less than an hour.:D tires.JPG
    And for some insight into my methods, the tire shop quoted me $160 and some change to unmount the old set then mount the new set, and after removing the old tires, I went back to have the wheels mounted on my new tires, and the price dropped to just $30 something.

    I agree completely.

    Granted they were 225/75R16's but those don't look all that big either, but a week ago I had a shop dismount a set of tires from some wheels I brought in and then put some 225/75R16 muds on the same rims. No tire purchasing, tire disposal or tire balancing involved just dismounting and mounting.
    $30 out the door.

    I could have done that in less time with the same tools you have there minus the sawzall and the tires would still be good.:crazy: If you are going to take them off with a sawzall all you need to do is break the beads and cut through them. you do not need to cut all the way around. just a waste of time to cut the tread from the sidewall.

    He should light it and use it to smoke out that shop that quoted that silly high price to mount those tires.

    Seems high, but I'm guessing at least part of that price was tire disposal fee. We have that here in KA.
