ZIPTIES TO SAVE THE DAY!
After I last posted I had to run out to lowes for some stuff. So when I was there I picked up some of those huge HVAC zipties. 10 bucks for 25 of those 1/2" wide X 36" long ties.
I popped the rear tire completely off again and put eight ties on the big block. I kept working my way around until i pretty much got both beads touching.
Then.....it was THE easiest tire change ever. I literally had the big block on the rim in under a minute, after it was a ziptied up. Using my travel 6 inch irons.
With the same method...I had the front done in under a half hour. Including taking off the rotors/abs ring and putting it all back on afterwards.
Thanks for all the help guys. Have a cold one on me.
Speaking of which it's time i had a cold one myself.
