Heat... I did mine in winter I had a propane heater in my shop I put the rubber next to that let it warm up it slid on like a glove

Thanks for the timely response. I'll have to figure out a heat source; I knew there was something missing from your instructions, but I do appreciate your help.
At least I now think I'm on the right track. Every story I found was about changing the wheel; yours was the only one I found about just the tire.

Well I wasn't the original postee however I have done this on 4 machines 8 tires total heat did seem to be the common factor. Harbor freight has a nice heat gun $15 that's the one I use

A couple of years ago I had to replace the front tires on my old 89' Honda 3011H rider. They are tubeless tires, and were getting pretty bald. Way back when I was a kid, I remember fixing flat tires on my bicycle using a couple of screwdrivers to separate them from the rim, being careful not to pinch the tube. Anyway, I brought them down to my local Honda dealer thinking they would have specilized tools to do the job. A week or so later they were ready for pick-up. Out of curiosity, I asked the guy at the counter, who I think was the owner, how he did it. With a smile on his face, he replied "We use the old Indian rope trick". Any comments?
