Peeling tires off the rims would be our nemesis. Clearing the rim of mud and resetting the bead was an hour task. The process involved trenching around the tire, digging out the mud, raising the vehicle with a Hi-Lift Jack and removing the tire, then cleaning the bead and wheel with less-muddy water and gently working the bead back on the rim. We would end up repeating this process six times during the first day on the trail.
