Tire Change-Can I do it?

also, get a rat tail file and open up the hole in the rim that the tube stem comes through. this will give the stem some room if tire or tube should move on the rim any.
this may start some debate but, you only need one rim lock. put the other on the shelf.

Lots of baby powder also helps the innertube to slip about inside and not hook up/stick to the rim or tyre surface as you angage the bead. I usually put a bunch of baby powder in a BIG plastic bag, throw my inner tube in there and shake (not stir). Puts a nice even layer of powder all over the tube.
Above process works awesome for mountain bike tyres too.
