Prying Tire From Inner Beads

After we have the outer bead loose, we then flip the wheel over on the bucket so it is face down and the outer bead is hanging off the wheel and the inner bead is resting where the outer once was. Then, using some more of our soapy water lube, we walk a pair of pry bars around the tire to get the inner bead off the wheel. It sometimes helps to stand or push on the tire with your foot while you are working the pry bars around. For you non-beadlock guys, you’ll have to do this for both the inner and outer beads.
