So how did he get the old tire off? Those same wrenches?

Just buy some damn tire irons and use a few strips of plastic jug for rim protection.

Ok... to protect the rim. Makes more sense

If you need a crowbar that big, with that amount of force, you could do some serious damage to the rim and/or the tire. I am not impressed with this video. Also, for only $25 you could get the tire mounted at Brooks Cycles

Thank gawd no one has invented tire irons yet! What an idiot.

I saved so much money by doing it my self even though I scratched the rim and bent it up. But in the end I did it my way.

+1

I'm all for ingenuity in a pinch but spoons are cheap.

Just for another point too, those big zip ties are not cheap.... when you can have someone install it properly and balance for a reasonable amount of money, this is just stupid.

I don't get the zip tie business. Did it help his break the bead of the old tire or help to get it off? One thing for sure is that he's got the weight of the tire and rim on his brake rotor. With the way he's stomping around like a drunk elephant he's bound to damage it.
