Townfair has done it to me for $2.50 a tire. They just charged me a disposal fee for the tire (which I didn't want anyway).

$10 to get rid of 4 tires was worth it to me

Not a national chain??


I only ask because it seems like there is one in almost every city out here. I actually try not to use them for anything other than dismounting tires.

Find a short piece of 2x4. Get the air out of the tires
Lay the tire and rim in its side. Place the 2x4 on the sidewall with the edge of the 2x4 right where the bead and rim lip meet. Place the other end of the 2x4 on the ground. Basically make a "ramp"
Drive your car forward slowly on the 2x4 the weight of the car will press the 2x4 diwn which in turn will press on the sidewall and pop the bead. Flip the rim and do it again in the other side.
Now use tire irons to pop the tire off. I've done this when I was off road and shredded a tire.


You can also deflate the tire and hit the sidewall with a sledgehammer close to the bead. It will pop off too

Why kill yourself trying this ??

Your either going to have to buy tools or pay for this, but doing it yourself can result in personal injury.

I think the poster was 'off-road'. maybe impossible to get to a tire shop (BTDT: MANY times on the farm / off road / cross country events...)
I've done this when I was off road and shredded a tire.

I do like my Craigslist 'Coats' tire machine that gets used a few hundred times / yr. My Neighbors LUV it!

I rarely take the tire machine on 'outings!'
