Rustling With the Quad Runner Tires
Wednesday June 16, 2021 Guerneville CA.
Quad runner tire work
I was expecting my new quad runner rear tires to be delivered today so I needed to get the old tires off the rims.
I decided to try this setup to break the tire beads. The car is driven up onto the board to break the tire beads, one side at a time.
First tire went well
The first tire went pretty well and I broke both sides fairly easily.
But not the second tire
And the second tire I was able to break one side but the other side just wouldn’t break so I tried another board and it still wouldn’t break loose.
I worked on that second tire on and off all day but I just couldn’t get it to break loose no matter what I tried.
New tires arrive
Late in the day my new tires were delivered but I still hadn’t gotten the last tire off it’s rim.
Given up for now
This is my last try late in the day. Still couldn’t get the rim off so I gave up for the day.
It was warm out today so the chickens had dug in in this damp dirt and are taking it easy.
I collected the eggs from my nest boxes. That one hen is still broody and I can’t get her out of the nest boxes so I just take her eggs away each day as I don’t need any more little chicks.
I have a plan
I need to make a trip to the shopping center soon, so maybe I’ll buy something to help out the tire situation to make the job easier like a tire bead breaker from Harbor Freight as I might need to do this again sometime.
Other then messing with the tires I just sat around an enjoyed the day.
