Getting ready for my first trip to the dunes so it's time to attempt to put on the padle tire. I tried to change the rear tire once in the past but gave up! I'll admit that after sweating it out for about an hour I realized that I forgot to release the tire lock, duuuh! I was so worn out that I just paid the the over priced shop and was done with it. I just found out that that they do it by hand also. I figure that if they can do it so can I! I'll be going back to a new knoby tire when I get back and would hate to pay twice for a tire change. Please give me some tips on how to get this done by myself. BTW, I got the part about removing the valve stem nut and the tire lock down, hahahaha. I also have a set of 3 tire spoons. Thanks, S/T.
