A big C-Clamp works good for breaking the bead.

I know what you mean. I use the tongue on our tilt bed trailer. I just put the tire on the tongue so when the deck comes down it pushs the tire off the bead, prying with a screw driver if it's bad.

Yeah, I put a screwdriver or two through a tire or two before trying to break the bead. Amazing how hard they are to get off...or on for that matter

I had the same problems on some tires, finally got them off. Now I take them to my local tire store and let them do it. It has been worth every penny.

I use a hydrolic press, but before I have use everything I could come up with, usually a bumper jack under a truck or farm machnery. It's a pain and I agree with "coldone", take it to the tire store. Mine would probably do it free but its too far to drive to town.

The neighbor asked to help him change his tires on his Gt , always willing to help , besides fighting to get the tires off it was worse trying to get the beads to seat. 3 hour job and when we were done he said " maybe I should have spent the $5 ea the tire shop was going to charge to mount them " ACHHHHHH

You should of been here when I removed the front tires from my John Deere. They had sat outside on the tractor for about 8 years, flat and had been filled with fix a flat. I ended up having to buy one of those Harbor Freight mini tire machines. I spent about 4 hours breaking the beads. It was so hard that I even put blisters on my hands from working the tool! The rims were really rusted on the inside!
