5 posts in this topic

I have a flat on my front tire of my x320. Dang roofers left a few nails that I found the hard way. Anyways what is the best way to get the tire off?

Are you talking about removing the tire from the rim?

If you can get a set of tire levers then that would be the tool or you can use some large "12" or larger" screwdrivers as levers, but obviously not ideal. With the air out you can stand on the sidewall to break the bead then use the levers to work the tire off.

Otherwise you have the option of trying some "fix a flat" to seal the hole since its just a mower tire.

They do have tire plug sets at most parts houses. Then you don't have to take the tire off.

I've got one lawn mower tire with 8 plugs in it right now. laugh

If you're going to get yourself a kit and do it yourself, get the better one, with the "T" handle where you can push with your weight to get through the tire.

If you get the cheaper kit, it's more like a screwdriver handle and you're not going to be able to get much pressure on it.

They're about $3 more.

    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
