I have a set of Roctanes that I can't bust off the rim. I tried spoons first, high lift jack pushing down on sidewall second. Now a manual tire changer to no avail. I was wanting to do this myself. Does anyone have any tips or tricks? The tires are still good so I don't want to damage them.

If you have a long 4x4 wood post and put it under a vehicle and use a short 4x4 block on the tire and like it is a fulcrum point as you use the wood post to lift the vehicle you will be pressing down on the tire to break it down.

Lay the tire/rim flat, using a 3' 2x10 lay it on the tire like a ramp. Get it close to the rim but not touching then drive your truck up on it. Been there done that

Thanks for the input all. I'll give it another shot after it warms up a bit.
