Now you know why I ditched the 10 inch tubes. However, when I did have the 10 inch tubes one of the guys at all-sport told me a trick. Use a little bit of dish soap to help the wet the rim and pump a little air in the tube so it won't pinch. Once I did that I was able to pop the tube/tire right on. Although, I sprayed a little WD-40 (just a little) because I didn't have access to soap at the time and a year later the tube/tire are fine. Either way, there's no "easy" way to change them out.

Good luck! And I hope you're using tire irons because by hand will only work at the end to push it on at the end.

It's a pain in the ass for sure, but WD-40 and air will help. And never go past 90 degrees with the irons. I did dozens of these each weekend. Putting an old axle in a vise so you can work at waist level or higher will help too.

You can patch tubes you know? Pick up a kit at Walmart in the bicycle section.

Patching may be a bad choice. Lord knows how many holes I managed to put in them.

I put about three holes in one of my tubes before I realized there was a big thorn stuck in the tire. Far easier than trying to source the odd size tube my 80 uses.

Nate, next time put a little bit of air and use the soap or WD-40. Unless you do that you'll pinch the tube each time because it will not hold in place. Well...that and a little patience helps
