Not very expensive, either.


I've mounted 12" tires (Cub) w/o too much trouble, but only got one 16" tire mounted for my H before taking the other to the tire shop. So, I'd vote with Dale on this one.

When I did mine, I bolted the wheel down onto the grate extension of my table saw. It held the rim enough to be able to be able to mount the tire without it sliding all over the place. Soap the rim as usual, and the heat gun doesn't sound like a bad idea. I like tire spoons rather than pry bars, or big screw drivers, but just be careful and you should be all set.
