    Flat tire - bead breaking tips?

    I got a Larry 3.8 on a Large Marge and they ain't coming apart! Glad I am not doing this for the first time in the snow!

    Tips on changing a flat tire anyone?

    Yup - that worked! wasn't pretty - but it did the trick. Helped to get both beads in the deep section of the rim before trying to get a bead over the lip.

    thanks!
