Tires that have been on the wheels for a while have a way of growing there. 15 years ago when this tire was new we had trouble with it slipping on the bead but now when it needs service it doesn't want to come off the wheel as it is stuck down. The solution is to dig some iron out from under the berry patch behind the shop and weld it up into a Press. It takes a shop truck crane to assemble the pieces, and this one is pushed by a 75 ton port-a-power, but the result is success. The tire is pushed free of the wheel.
