    I am assuming that you have opened the quick release on the brake..

    To put in a truck bed? All the ones I know of require the front wheel off...maybe you should get a thinner tire or if that's not an option, get a hitch rack if it's a pickup.

    Performance and other companies make a several different "trailer hitch" types of racks that do not require removing the front wheel.

    I once saw, at a race, a fellow with Yakima compatible rails mounted to the bed floor of his truck that allowed him to mount the type of bike rack model that lets you leave the front tire on. Not sure I would want to drill holes in my truck bed floor to make this work though.
