Well, today I learned that the major tire shops won’t even touch the split locking ring wheels like on the M37. I even went to a commercial shop that does heavy duty equipment, highway trucks, farm equipment, etc. They looked at me like I was carrying a bomb in my truck. I was planning to stop at a non-franchised shop on my way home, but ran out of time and decided to give it a try myself.

I did a quick review of Bob’s 2016 thread where he tried out his fancy new tool on some stuck CMP wheels and tires and got a few ideas.

I tried breaking the bead with my pickup on one side of the tire, and tractor bucket on the other... no luck.
