tires and rims..

so i have a set of rims that a buddy wants and they still have the old tires on em, can i seperate the tires from the rims myself w/ minimal hand tools or should i take it to a tire shop and have them seperate them for me?

thanx,

Grifter

unless, of course, any one here has a tire machine in their personal garage somewhere here local, now that would be really nice...hehehe

hey go to harbor freight they have a tire mounter and demounter for 70.00 but i bought it a long time ago. let all the air out of the tire and lay it on the ground and have your buddy drive over just the tire and it should come un sealed from the rim. then take the pry bar and rry the tires off

Ed Roy's Tire store on Dixie hwy in waterford only charges 2.50 per tire to dismount call local shops and have your buddy pay or split cost

if you dont want the hassle, it isnt that expensive to have a shop dismount tires. otherwise, a prybar, case of beer, and lots of time in the driveway will get em off too
