Anyone else find removing the rear wheels a major pain??

I would love to hear the ideas/techniques people use to get them off without special tooling.

Hit the tire with a BFH.....again and again if necessary. That should 'bout do...if it don't get a bigger BFH.

Let the air out, drive over the tire with your other vehicle using the weight of the other vehicle to break the bead, and then use the head off of a matdox or pick to peel it off.

Once you get them off, clean up the mating surfaces with a wire brush, and Never Seez the crap out of the mating surfaces. That will make the next time much more enjoyable!!!
