I tried putting on the tire and it's impossible!
I'm going to have to pay $15.00 to get the tire mounted at a motorcyle shop!
Then the process of putting everything back together!
Does it matter which way the tire goes?

Stop trying to change the tires with your bare hands Marcus. Put on some gloves and muscle that bead onto the rim!

i reckon you should give it a go yourself.
and keep providing us comentary of your progress.
that we we can assist you in getting to learn how it's done
plus it has been slightly amusing creating a mental picture of you doing it.
good luck, have a go mate. you can do it.
it's just like dragging off an xr 80, and with that new tyre on he'll have no show against you.

Hint, when learning, another set of hands and a five gallon bucket come in real handy so to speak.
Now go get it!!

I used 2 tire irons and some flat head screwdrivers and got the some more of the tire on the rim.
It's stretched so tight that nobody could pull it in only a machine!
I am putting half the tire on and then I will put the tube in.

Keep at it, you'll get it. I must admit it brings back memories (painful) of learning to change them.
Now before you go any further go get some liquid analgesic. It comes in many forms, the barley malt variety, distilled spirits or even a nice wine. Apply internally as often as needed.
