Hey all, simple question... whats the best way to take off a tire the rim? no need to keep em there being tossed... all the air is out of them... i tried breaking the seal off with a big screw driver... but no go... i dont have the correct tools for the job so makes it harder...


:D

Easiest way is to have someone with a machine to take them off. Saves a lot of sweat and all your neighbours hearing you swear.

Or you can cut them off by cutting the tyre through and then cutting the bead.


The bead is a C*** to cut. That s**t is hardened steel and won't budge without a fight.

I suggest you try and break the bead in anyway possible. You can make a tool using timber you have lying around.

I managed to break the bead by using the end of a trailer, with a piece of cloth wrapped around the hitch, letting it rest on the tyre and then jumping on the trailer...hard part was holding the rim/tyre steady while jumping on it. I was doing this on my race bike rims/tyres, so it may have been easier since they are some what thinner.

If not, I'd take it to a tyre place and get it removed...they might do it for free.

the bead is rather close to the rim, so could damage the rim like that.

You could also build you're own bead breaker using large pieces of timber...unless you know how to weld you can use steel bars...

here are some examples.....

I would say the steel one is much sturdier haha.

tyre shop job, they wont damage your rim, and they will dispose of the tyre for the princely sum of about $5

you can break beads with a bottle jack,something heavy and a bit of ingenuity :wink:

i made a jig to suit a hayman reece towbar arrangement and bottle jack to break tyre beads. generally the higher profile the tyre the less force it requires as theres more sidewall flex. not sure if the width affects it. it's actually a little unsettling when you figure out how easy it is to pop it when the force is applied in the right way.
