A lot of trouble... Hear is a tip, take it to a tire shop. You will fight forever with it.i remember somebody saying something about doing this yourself. they said it was pretty difficult.
i need to swap tires from one rim to another, how much trouble am i gonna have and does anybody have any tips?
i tried for about 5 mins today, jabed myself a few times with a screwdriver, said a bijilion cuss words and went inside and ate me a ham samitch.
im taking it somewhere. F that.
Why would you want to do that? If you take them somewhere and have them changed, they will probably charge you the same amount anyway, whether they pop them on the bead or not.well if u just have them put on u can use gas and a mach and bed them ur self
They're easy to change once you get the beads broken loose, but the beads are the hard part. Also, popping them back on the bead can be hard sometimes.if i was really hard headed i probably would have been in the same position 4 hours later. i was worried i was gonna poke thru the tire also. that will be 5$ well spent.
Yeah, I've broken the beads by driving a truck over them and sometimes it works and sometimes it don't, but it mostly don't.I just took the two front tires off my rims and they were even more of a pain than the rears... Managed to pop the bead on the outside of both tires by driving my truck up on them but couldnt for the life of me get the inners to pop... Ended up cutting the rubber off with a utility knife and snipping the bead cable one wire at a time with side cutters. Needless to say I'll be going to a shop from now on.
