I have a slow leak on my 730 rear tire. Any advice on getting the rim off of the hub? I removed the nuts and wedges, but it does not budge. I even put some wedges back on, hand tightened the nuts and drove around. Still no luck. Thanks.

Loosen nuts up but keep on and hit wedges with a 4 lb sledge. I was taught 39 years ago by my dad to keep nuts on so the the wedges won't come off like a rocket and hurt someone or damage anything.

Hoofer,
I don't know your situation, but it is much easier to remove a tire from the rim, when mounted to the tractor. If you are just patching the tube or replacing the tube you don't even have to do any more than break the inner and outer beads. Then pry off the outer bead of the tire and pull the tube. The tractor on a solid jack does a great job of holding the rim from moving. It's not like trying to trim a hoof of a kicking heifer.HeHe

but how do you break the bead with the tire on the tractor? to break beads i lay the tire flat on the groun then carefully push down with the teeth on my backhoe bucket right close to the rim all the way around.

There are two simple and inexpensive ways to break the tire beads, while still on the tractor. You can buy a sliding hammer bead breaker or even cheaper, most Tractor Supply stores offer a chisel shaped tool that you hit with a 4# hammer that you drive inbetween the rim flange and tire bead. Both have a rounded blade about 3" wide and about 1/2" thick. I believe that KD Tools makes them both. They are handy and in expensive. I have used the Backho Bead breaker also, but that can damage the sidwall of the tire because you can't get the bh tooth to wedge in between the rim bead and tire bead like the bead breakers I described. I'm too old to bull rear wheels and tires around, so I look for the easiest way, with a minimal amount pulling, tugging and swearing.

The heifer gives me no problem as I have a fully hydraulic upright chute. As for the tire, I have a few bars and a gallon of slick. We change semi tires all the time, but never while on the truck. Bill

I bring home the hydralic air powered bead breaker and push it right off. Only $1000 for one. We do our own tires on 30,000 acres farm in South Florida.
