Grave robbers. This thread is 3 years old


Monty Python has so much untapped forum enhancing material

I just drive over the tire and rim with the old pickup.
I use a board when I do fancy rims.

Later,

It's alive again!! If I have the time to wait, Discount Tire will do it for free and sometimes I just drop em off and go run other errands but I've been busting down my own tires for many years and even mount and balance my own. Got tired of fixing busted lugs from over zealous moron impact users. Just a few weeks ago a buddy came over with his Dakota because he couldn't get the front wheels off to do a brake job. My breaker bar is pretty long but we had to stick on a 24" cheater pipe and stand on it to get the lug nuts off!! What kind of crap is that!? A local chain auto store (not Discount) had just installed his new tires a month earlier. Anyways, installing new tires is easy (at least to me ) and have never distorted a bead. Little bit of soap and water or WD-40 goes a longs ways too to help lube the rubber to make it slide easy. I made a bead breaker a long time ago and that stopped the jacking and using bare rims to break the bead lol but recently, I found a manual tire changer and that should help I hope. I too have had a few wheels messed up by so called experienced tire changers using the real machines.

removing tires

Try pouring a little gas around the bead, (to soak in and break the bond).

Then use a zip gun w/large dull chisel to break the bead.

Note: I know gas is very flamable. Truck tire shops have been using gas to

break tire beads forever. Go ask.

then to put the tire back on the bead, take some starting fluid, spray it around the bead seat part of the rim and on the main part of the rim itself and carefully ignite the lighter fluid. the can of starting fluid with a lighter in front of it works good as it keeps you away from the tire, do this only if all other methods fail.

Brake fluid and water mixed makes a good lubricant for tire beads and tire tools.

I've done the drive around the tire to break it loose many times before and put the tire back on the rim without any damage. I wouldn't do it with a radial tire that I wanted to keep because it might break the belts. I wouldn't have any reservations about mounting a tire myself on a steel wheel but wouldn't do it to an aluminum wheel because fear of damage.

With used tire machines and even balancers going so cheap I would look into picking one up assuming you have a garage and a decent compressor. I've seen working Coats tire machines go as cheap as $100.
