Breaking down tires.

I am taking a break. I have been out side breaking down the tire and wheel assemblies on my flat bed trailer. The tires are shot on it and I blew one last night so in an effort to save some money I am breaking them down and swapping them myself.

I am not whining just sharing!

Bigger tires are easier to break down. I'd rather just use the machine at school lol.

Sorry gents, I would have to dissagree. I had the pleasure to break down a C-130 main tire........ Never again. I'll stick with my building my jet engines.

Its all about the Side wall, you can have a big tire on a big rim and it will be hard, but that same size tire on a smaller rim is way easier
