    Removing old tire

    I have a rim that has a really old tire on it and it has like fused to the rim any hints at getting it off? I have tried to get stuff between the the tire and the rim to no avail really. I even cut a section out of the tire but it still won't budge.

    This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

    Pinch your tire in a bench vice.Use wood blocks if you have to for soft jaws so you dont scar the rim

    Get two pieces of wood (2"X4"X6") and a big clamp. Put the wood on the tire at the edge of the rim and screw the clamp down on the wood until the bead breaks. It might take a try or two but it will work.
    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened

    Haven't tried yet. Bike is at home and I am at college. But I will be home this weekend and will give it a try.
