  1. This works great on any type of car tire... a nice way to do it yourself and keep from scratching your painted rims!

    Wish I'd known that trick back when I was a young punk mounting new junkyard tires by hand every weekend or so. I don't think trash bags were invented yet though. Very cool, Thanks!

    That might work on a tire with a very flexible sidewall like a drag slick, but I don't see it working on a stiff bias ply or radial.

    I have to agree with BamaMa-70v, lets see you do that with a 4 ply polyester bias tire or a 235x70x15 radial.

    SPRAY SILICONE WORKS BETTER.
     
  24. I have mounted both drag slicks and radial tires by hand and can say the soft side wall on slicks make them harder to mount. The bead on both are just as tight, but the soft sidewall make the slick harder to manipulate.

  25. I've used this trick on bias plys and radials... works just as easy... if not, easier. Reason being, the slick is like pushing a worm down into its hole...

    I've never really had any trouble mounting a tire...It's taking a tire off the wheel, more specifically breaking the bead from the rim. Anybody found a slick way to do it?...(And driving over the tire has never worked for me.)
