I'm switching tires on a moped to another, and the tire is REALLY hard to remove.
I have bought a bicycle tire lever kit, there was 2 kind, one in plastic, the other in metal, i choosed the plastic one because i thought it would not scratch my rim if i did something wrong... Well, the platic was pretty hard, i thnk it would have been strong enough for a bicycle, but when i tryed, after applying some force, the lever broke.
I dont think i would have been able even with metal ones.
Do you have any techniques? What kind of tools do you use? Should it be REALLY hard? How many levers do you use?
I'm feeling kind of stupid, but i had to ask.
Also, the tire is brand new, but it has been on a moped, outside, for YEARS...it's not dryrotted, but i'm starting to think that it gor harder with years.
Anyway, give me your techniques.
