I do my own, but most any tire shop will do it too.
Whether you deliver it or pay them for a service call.
I use a little press device to break the bead down and change the
tire while the rim is still on the tractor.
Others lay them flat and hammer them with a mall or a tire hammer.
Press the bead loose with a front end loader/skid steer.
Back over it with a pickup tire, etc.
Various methods but you'll still need a good set of spoons or blunt pry bars.
Then again, as JMOR once said "tire guy's gotta eat too".

Here's the press I use: Lil Buddy

I do it all the time but then I do have the equipment to do it so very little real work doing it. It all comes down to know how or lack of know how as to how hard it is to do

I do my own because I'm usually broke when it's needed....
but it NOT my favorite thing.
tire stores do it,
but also, some small Farm yards and parts places do it.
Keep your eyes open in farm country, at those little corner gas stations.
Found a reasonable, very talented older guy that does them near me. He'll get my next one.
asked, because of all the big tractor tires around his place.

and like Royce said, most guys near me much prefer you bring
the whole tractor. It's easier for them when they are still on it

I do all my own tire work.
Drive onto the tire next to the rim with the front tire of my pickup to break the bead. Then use a combination of 30" crow bars and wunderbars to remove the tire.
Kind of hard, dirty work if they've been on there for years but even bringing the tire in will cost about $75 to get a flat fixed. Plus another $60 for a service call if they have to come to your location.

I too do all of my own tire work, which is ONE reason why I NEVER load tires with anything aside from air.

The best tool for breaking beads on tractor tires is a slide hammer. You will want one if you plan to anything other than rare tire work.

A decent slide hammer will cost $100 or more. I bought mine for $50 a few years when Northern Tool had one on clearance. Prior to that, I borrowed one from a friend.
