Yea, try that on 8" or 12" rims that the rubber and metal have rusted together.

Would't be nice if Garden Tractors ran the .5 rims (16.5 and 22.5)

I am waiting on those 12.5 rims. The ones without the bead keeper that seems to kick our ass all the time.

I take my newly painted rims to Pats Tire and I get new tires and the rims are not scratched. :rocker2:

I have had good luck with the sledge hammer and wood block guys, sometimes 1 hit, sometimes 5 or 6 hits and I'm not swinging the sledge as hard as I can, don't want to hit my toes, that would hurt too much.

When I can't find my tire spoons, I use a very dull wood splitting wedge and a 3lb hammer. I spray a lot of PBblaster on the bead and slowly work around the bead. Don't give up even if it doesn't look like it's moving, it will.

I use the wheel lift on my dad's tow truck.
