How do I Take a Car Tire Off the Rim?

Answer

If you aren't planning on using the tires again, then you can just snatch out the valve stem with a pair of pliers. This allows the air to escape from the tire. Now comes the fun part. You have to pop the bead of the tire off the rim. Sometimes you can jump on the sidewall, and it will pop loose. Most of the time though, I have to run up on the sidewall with the tire of my truck.

The easiest, safest, and most efficient way is to take the tires to a reputable shop and allow them to do it for you. If you are going to do it yourself, you will need a lot of muscle and patience! This is a tough job! Let the air out of the tire and push the valve stem out of the rim. you will then have to break the 'bead' on the tire. This is the hard, sometimes almost impossible part. It takes a lot of force to break the bead, and it can be dangerous. You can find more information here: www.city-data.com
