I'm just about to put acouple of 23x10.5x12 tru power on the rims, and I see on the tires "rim guard".
Opposite each other, and on both sides.
What's that?

After using mine changing garden tractor & ATV tires I found that mounting the base to my welding table that is alittle below waist level really helped. I also wore out the rubber around the center support and had a center piece made from mylar. It has a groove that sits over the support and a hole in the center for the allthread rod. Really stiffened the center rod and keeps it from flexing to much and allows more control when pushing down on the breaker tool.

"Rim Guard" refers to the deep bead that will protect the rim from hitting something. Very popular in the skid steer industry.

So, the other day, I was grumbling about how hard it was to get the small rusty tires off the rim.

Putting new ones on, requires a hammer.IMO
Throw all those fancy tools under the bench.IMO
