Going to be replacing the tube tires, non split ring, on my 39 Chrysler. One has a cracked valve stem. Have spoons and irons, new tubes and tires. Right now I need to replace one tube to move the car around and then in a couple weeks I will be changing all after sandblasting, then repainting the rims will be putting new tires on. Watched a few vids on changing tube motor cycle tires. Guessing car tires change the same way. Found an old thread about removing and replacing tires and tube will r
X2 or 3 on the wire brush, sandpaper, primer Rustoleum. Need to let it cure for a week or more, though, before forcing tires on.
I broke the beads just by setting my boot heel right on the bead and bouncing up and down. Even at 180 pounds that was enough. I did it in the garage door so I could hold on and keep from breaking my neck in the process.
There's also a tire mounting trick with trash bags that some guys say makes the tires jump right on.
