Hi all,
Time for new tires.
Any tips on removing the tires and rims? I have a tall tripod for one side and an engine hoist for the other and plan cinder blocks and wood under the center.
I didn't see a section for this in the shop manual.

If you only want to do one side at a time, run one side up on a 4x6 or two 2x6s.

Another way for front is to run one onto a 2x6 and take off other . Local tire supply has 6x16 for $55. Leave rear rims on and change tire and clean,straighten.paint rim. 15.5x38 $3 .96

Are you taking the tires to a shop? If you are going to change them yourself, leave the rims on the tractor. Much easier to change that way.

Most tire guys will far prefer to change the rear tires while the wheels are attached to the tractor.

When you threw in the part about the narrow front, I thought you meant the front tires. Easiest way is call the on farm tire guy and like has been said, change them right on the tractor. They're a bear to change if they're laying on the ground. Ten times the work plus the trouble of taking the rims off and putting them back on. It's easier to get the tire off the rim than it is to get the rim off the center.

As has been said, just call them and have them come out.

Also, are the tires filled with anything?

Well, found two bipods left on the place that fit well under the axles, so placed them on 2x12s and used a floor jack to lift each side and remove rim/tire. Did not know one tire was mostly full of water.
Made it quite the task to lift into the pickup. 28 miles from my place to the shop.
New tires are on, and back on the tractor as of yesterday evening. Unfortunately, just as I parked it, saw the left side going down and went flat, so expect the shop did not clean up the rims sufficiently and some burr went through a new tube. Disappointing is a word after all that.
Will see if they are willing to come out and fix this time. Said they are shorthanded at the shop to make trips.
