I Know their was post not to long ago about how to change a tractor tire at that time my pc was on the fritz and I could not down load pictures. I pulled the tire off my 630 dropped it on the ground and used the axle to jack against the tire to break the bead. Make sure the key way in the axle is down and the tractor is in gear

Looks like a good way to get your self or someone else hurt. All it takes is for one of those wood blocks to fall off that floor jack and your had. By the way never good for the wood block to be on the jack the jack should be on them instead. Sorry I learned to do things the safe way and the correct way

This topic has been discussed a lot. In my opinion it is a lot easier and quicker to change them on the tractor. Just get a hand held bead breaker and a good hammer, and your set to go. Can change them in 1/4 the time.

I have found leaving the tire on the tractor is the easiest way to fix them. I use a old wood splitting wedge to break them down.

I have used a Handyman jack to do this on implement tires in a pinch, on 99% of my tires I cheat and call my long time tire guy to do the work call me lazy if you wnat but I figuare he is a private operator and can use the work and I am able to deduct the repairs 100% with my farm taxes so it works well for me, besides on of my jobs years ago was a tire man at the county and I really got my fill of tire repair LOL, last few I did do I used my 580's cuuting edge to break the bead worked very well great looking 630? thanks for sharing cnt

That looks like an accident waiting to happen. It might have worked really good, but you have a tractor on a floor jack, sitting on wood blocks and using a bumper jack to push the tire, if that tire would be stubborn and not break off bead, you could lift tractor off jack, and the tractor could go anywhere, including on you or a bystander....

I have a rear tire to remove from a rim soon, and you've peaked my interest in the vacuum cleaner method. How do you hook up the vacuum cleaner to the valve core, and wouldn't it just suck the tube flat?

I gave up on the old method of using a hammer. Its to slow and requires work.
Very Happy I cheat and use the rear bucket on the backhoe. It takes just a min to pop the bead. I spend more time getting on and off the backhoe to flip the tires over to do the other side.

Another way we learned to do it is with a hydraulic log splitter. Ours happens to be a 3-point model, I donít know how well other types would work. Just put the splitter under the tire with a block of wood or piece of metal against the wedge on the splitter. If your hoses are long enough you can even use the same tractor to power it.

I've seen my dad run upon the tire with the front tire of another tractor.
