never try to get stock tires off the rims

it took me 7 fu*king hours beofre i got pissed and threw the fu*kers in the trash still attached to the rim.. hour later i went out and grabbed them before decideing to cut the bead away from the rim the damn thing wouldent come off for ANYTHING.. if you ever get new tires bring them to a shop because its defanitley not worth almost killing yourself to get the pieces of shit off... but the holeshots are a lot better then the slicks

01 rm250.. completely macked out for sale.. 1800 or b.r.o

lol done the same thing a few times myself, did you try and take the valve core out and driving over the tire right next to the rim with a truck or something? that will also work.

Its worth the $10 to have someone else bust a sweat over it. I tried swapping tires out once myself...never again.

Yeah but to bad they have fancy machines that'll have the old tire off and the new one on in a matter of minutes. I guess I'm lucky to have friends that work for a car dealership.

Even if I can't wait we have our own bead breaker so it's not that bad.

Thats some crazy pricing! Have you only checked one place? Also go to regular car tire shops they should be able to change them for you (They have for me) instead of a dealer.

I bought a manual tire changer from Harbor Freight when they had them on sale for $35. normally $70. Well worth the money. Now after having it I would easily pay the $70 for it. It takes about 10 minutes to remove old tire and mount a new one.

Tried and tried to get the tires off, sledghammer, and everything. Tried to drive a truck on them and it didnt work. Took them and got them changed for like 6 bucks, but they broke my valve stems and now the one leaks (they put a new one on the other side and charged us for something they did )

Too much to list!!

I just got back from the motorpool at work here and it was easy to change my stockers and put my new H-D's on. You need to break the beads by doing the valve stem side first. Facing up, break the bead and
then flip it over and do the other bead. Flip it back to the valve stem side and pry the bead over the rim. Then flip the whole thing over and lift the
other bead off the valve stem side of the rim. You only need to work about half of the bead over the edge of the rim, then just tip the tire up at an increasing angle to the rim...and it's off.

if you can get the bead broke i dont care what kind of tire it is...a car, truck (not one of those big hacking things) or a quad it can be taken off a swapped with only a rubber hammer and 2 pry bars.
yamaha tires are a pain in the butt to get off. I had to take them and they charged $10 for both fronts


but i got a dump truck to run over my tecate front rims and break the bead and swapped them over

and for school we need to be able to change a car tire in under 2 minutes


i did it in 40 seconds....manually break the bead, take it off flip it over stick it on and fill her up....kinda fun

for all of you trying to change tires yourself, heres something you may want to consider.... if you put a little air in the tire (say 10lbs) then run it over with ur high tech redneck beadbreaker of a truck, u may have better luck.... with our tire machine at voc, i couldnt get the beads to seperate from the rim, because the stock blaster tire (prolly the worst yamaha tire to change) kept folding and the arm would just slide off the tire.... i got frustrated, put about 20lbs in it so it was solid, and first try it seperated.....sure the principal about shat himself because it sounded like a gunshot when it finally let go and didnt like it too much, but i got my new tires mounted
