Removing Outter Bead Off Wheel

Once the inner bead is broken, if you’ve got a beadlock wheel, now you will probably need to get the outer bead loose. We put the wheel and tire up on a 5-gallon bucket and use a thin flathead screwdriver to pry the outer bead off the wheel. It doesn’t take much at all, so this misapplication of tools is OK. For you non-beadlock guys, flip the tire over and do the Hi-Lift dance again.
