Don't laugh too hard here, well, Ok, if you want to.
Last fall, I had the tire company out to change the Calc loaded rear on my Case 930.
Tire guy had NO problem. Just jacked up the rear, took the tire off the rim and replaced it.
(excluding pumping of fluid)
He never took the rim off the tractor. Looked pretty easy.
Tractor held the rim still for him.
I had to take one off my Ford Jubilee tonight, figured I'd try it that way.
It worked, tire's off, but MAN! Seems like I had to work twice as hard!
I got the beads broke loose Ok, a little harder than most, but they were both free.
The hard part was getting it over and off the rim edge.
Anyone else ever tried it this way at home?

I use two tire irons and a pair of vise grips on the rim to keep the bead from continueing to 'follow' as I pry the bead on or off of the wheel. Might take a time or two, but it gets easier.

That is the easiest way to change them. Throw the soap away and get yourself some professional tire lube, the liquid stuff. Use it straight, dont dilute it with water. far slicker than any soap.

If you have the correct tire irons the job is easy, if not it is a little challenging.

The tire guy was probably a younger man who still had all his strength, and he probably also had the special tools needed to break the bead instead of one of those slide-hammer bead breakers.

An older guy, with shoulder problems, just doesn't get along all that well with a slide-hammer bead breaker, so we find it is easier to remove the tire/rim from the tractor, lay it down under the drawbar of another tractor, and then use a handy-man jack to break the beads, and if you can get your wife to stand on one side of the tire while you're working the opposite side up and over the rim, it really goes pretty fast.

If you did 5 or 6 of them a week for a couple of
months someone watching you would think it's easy.
In many cases tasks on tasks like this the
difference between DIY and professional is not much
more that the experience, after you gain it the
task gets easier you trade skill for labor.

I'm sure experience had a lot to do with it.
I've changed quite a few tires over the years, all types, but I have always
taken the rims off and laid them down to to remove the tire.
Live and learn!
