Removing and installing rear tire

Postby ShawnAgne » Tue Nov 12, 2019 10:33 am

I need to dismount flip and remount the right rear tire so I can set it out wider. Local place will charge $105 to do this $40 for tire and $65 for service call. Don't feel like spending that much. So wondering how hard is this to do? What tools do I need? I've watched my auto tires get changed but that is with the automatic machine. Any help appreciated.

Just called a rural tire shop that does ag tires as well. Cost to dismount and remount a 9x24 tractor tire (dry, no fluid) on a 24" rim = $36.

Sounds like you need to call some other "local" places to get a better price.

EDIT: BTW, I bought a manual bead breaker and (2) tire iron tools that cost me well over $150 to do my (2) 11.2-36 tires for the AV I'm doing. There were plenty of moments I wished I'd just taken it to a tire shop instead of "saving some money". :wink:

If I read your question correctly, the "service call" at $65 is to have someone ride out to your place to do the tire flip on site. Why not un-bolt the wheel, throw the wheel into the back of your truck and take it to the tire shop yourself?

The shop near me charges twice that. That prompted me to learn to do it myself. It’s not easy but I’ve done it more than a few times now.
One thing when you do it yourself is when the tire is off you will see the condition of the inside of the rim. Haven’t found one yet that didn’t prompt me to wire brush away the rust and repaint it before installing the tire. A tire shop won’t do that.

Shawn,
If you deliver the tire/rim to the local shop, will they nix the service call and just charge the $40.
That is pretty close to Stanton's $36 , and i agree, will be money well spent.

My brothers father in law works at a New Holland dealer and he says who they use is about 45 minutes from where Ilive. Gary doesn't know of anybody local who does it. Guys like one I call have the corner on the market. Guy I called is who farmer across the road uses. He doesn't have a shop he comes to you. If I could deliver it somewhere I would.

I learn something here every day. I find it amazing that ag tire retailers are not stumbling over one another in Darke county, one of the top agricultural counties in Ohio.

Bill,

I know I thought the same. I'm going talk to more people and see. North Star Hardware is where Gary works and they do service calls, and fix all the big farming tractors but don't do tires, was suprised. Have an IH dealer (Apple's) close by I will call them and see what they say.

Cub rears? I changed a couple myself and it was done but mucho cursing and time. Now I load them up and take them to Firestone as well as all my fronts. It isn't a rural shop but we all our car business there so they will dismount, put in the tube and remount for $20. The big rears for the 504 and the 3020 would go to a truck shop where it is $50

I did one rear on my Cub. I used THIS HARBOR FREIGHT TIRE CHANGER. I basically used the machine to break the bead and hold the center and rim. Put the tire on and off the rim with a couple of irons. I don't think too much of that lever that comes with it and it may be too short for a 24" tire anyway.

Probably wouldn't be too bad to do one on the ground. The challenging part is breaking the bead. I've broken beads on tires by sliding them under my pickup truck and using a scissors jack between the sidewall and frame.

Well update, I called the local garage where I take our cars. He said they could break it down and swap the tire around and mount it back. Should be done tomorrow. They were a little slow and needed something to do.

Hi,
When mounting a tire with a tube in it, after you inflate it to the right pressure, let the air completely out of it, all that will come out, then inflate it again to the right pressure.
Letting the air out after inflating it helps the tube straighten out in the tire. Sometimes there can be one or more folds in the tube when first inflated. The tube can fail over time, where the folds are.

This post below that I wrote on has tire pressure info. My post is part way down the page. :)

Shawn, glad to hear you found someone. Hope it was better suited, financially speaking.

If you are just changing the width, you can swap both wheels and centers, or pull the rim reverse the center and reinstall the rim.
