Not in my opinion. More of a pain in the A-- than its worth.

I'd rather split the cases on the motor than change a tire.

honestly,drive a vehicle as close to the rim as you can,obv without touching it,once the bead breaks. they sell all kinds of stuff. i know for my motorcycle tires,i bought rim protectors,$5,and a couple autozone pry bars,theyre not really pry bars they look like heavy duty flat head screwdriver with a bent 45* tip. as for the driving over the tire,you can probably just let the air out and hit right near the bead with a sledgy or somthing,then wedge prybar under it,or just get the actual tire spoons,and work your way around. then the new tire spray it down with whatever is recomended,soap and water? push it onto the rim,one side should go on then the next side is the harder side to get on,you use the spoons or prybars and just work your way around.

i have never done this but read alot about it. youtube has a bunch of videos,redneck versions lol that look like they would work pretty good. i know when i do it,i am going to do it myself somhow. so let me know,post back on how you did it if you do.thanks

i think i will try putting a plank close to the rim and driveing my pick up truck up it . I did this with my kids LT 80 and it sucked, I think I had to fire deck screws thru it. i am going to try tommorrw and if this fails I might have to go to the tire guy

Its really easy or least me and my buddies do it all the time...we use a big leg jack on my buddies truck hitch to pop the bead works great we switched all 4 of my tires in 30 mins or less simple.

If you're busy at work get a few extra hours in and then pay someone to do it with the money you make. What's your time worth.

I've found that the local tire kingdom here in town will mount them for as little as $5 a wheel if you're paying cash and don't mind dropping them off. Talk to a manager and tell em you're paying cash usually you just pay whoever put them on! I usually tip them an extra five too lol
