It can be done...how big tractor tires are changed...you have a tool that clamps on the rim to break the bead.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Those are budd wheel studs by the way...you have to have a socket to take that outer nut off...its rh thread...then you need another socket to take that square shaped stud out...its lh thread to remove the inner wheel...just in case you need to take it off in the future


I am sure looking forward to seeing your pictures...i check your thread a few times a week.

Thanks!! You just cleared up a big question in my head on how it works with the stud and the lug nut. I was gathering there was more to it than I thought. So do the outer and inner wheels have different size mounting holes? No video, Bansil, but I have pics!

Re: Project "Brutus"

Cool, when I got my spare....I asked the tire guy for just a tire and he said "cheaper and easier to just tire/wheel combo"...cost like $50 for non retread used tire and a wheel mounted
Now I'm thinking wow.....

Post more pics when you get a chance.....your tire change is at opposite end of universe from mine before the trip

NO, wheels are both the same.
Here's a picture of inner and outer nuts.

Re: Project "Brutus"

Couple pics at the resort...rough life.





My wife is intensely afraid of heights. I asked her if she thinks gravity is going to go sideways and suck us off the mountain. This was me acting that out. She was actually mildly humored. We were in a rental here, but driving the bus she would go hide in the back at some points. I felt bad for her and drove like a saint (not sarcastically, tried to make it as smooth as possible for her)



Pics from a random road we ended up on...





Didn't like my mirror mounts, as they were designed to have 2 mirrors on each side for safety. I had removed the 2 showing the front of the bus, but still had to use the goofy brackets. So, I broke out the welder before we left. Went from this...





to this...







Burney Falls, near Mt. Shasta



View from Mt. Shasta



Redwood forest...hard to capture!!







Ocean!



Heading home... This is after the tire blow out.



At a pullout, heading into the Tetons!









Tetons...








These are all off my phone... Camera pics tonight.
