Removing Tire And Tube From

Remove valve cap and valve core to free all air from tube. Remove valve stem nut. If four bead anchor screws are present on each side of rear wheel rim, remove screws. Loosen both beads from rim flanges by stepping on sides of tire or by using a tire tool.

Stand or kneel on tire opposite valve to push bead into rim-well. Using tire tools, (not sharp instruments), start upper bead over edge of rim at valve. Don't use force when starting bead over edge of rim with tire iron, because bead wires may be broken or stretched and the tire ruined. Carefully remove inner tube before attempting to remove second bead. Push lower bead into rim-well on one side and insert tire iron on opposite side and pry bead over flange. After a portion of second bead is started over rim edge, tire can be further removed from rim without aid of tire iron.

It is not always necessary to completely remove casing from rim. Removing one side only allows inner tube to be removed and installed and also allows inside of casing to be inspected.
