Removing/cutting off rear tire YM1601D

Postby agirlandhertractor » Wed Apr 24, 2019 3:27 pm

Any tips/advice on how to remove 40 year old rear tires from a rim? I'm pretty certain the rims are a bit rusty but if they aren't too bad I'm going to have them sandblasted and powder coated before putting the new tires on.

I've changed dozens and dozens of motorcycle tires but never anything this tough or large.

The hardest part is getting the tire's bead broken loose from the wheel. Sometimes if you drive around a little (in the grass or dirt - not concrete) while the tire is flat & valve core is out it can help loosen them. I know that every time I had a low tire and DIDN'T want the tire to come off the bead it happened very quickly :D .

Once the beads are both broke loose you just need 2 large pry-bars. Use some dish soap as a lube helps also.

I've tried cutting a tire off once and it was a wreck. By the end I decided it was easier to just leave the tire in one piece. The hardest part was the metal cord that runs right along the bead. Even if you cut all of the rest of the tire off you still have to get that loose and you can't really get in there very good to cut it without cutting the wheel.

That's why I bought your turf tires mounted for my 1610D in '09, just R & R. The guy that bought the AG set was happy they were mounted too :D . As a side note Aaron, this turf set has worked out perfectly for my property and use, thanks for making them available.

Truck tire shop, probably $10, especially if you swear to let them mount new. Better yet, take the new tires with you, just tell dealer you just need to refinish wheels before remounting. I had a YM2000 rear tube patched for $8 e few years back.

Lower the wheel-less hub onto the tire next to the bead, it will pop.
