It was time for new tires and I wasn't able to get the old tires off the wheels. I was using tire levers (the black ones that come in your standard tire repair kit) and they seemed to be too flimsy for the job. I also tried to use a screwdriver (bad, I know) while protecting the rim with a piece of old tube.
I ended up having to cut the tires off with a Dremel with the help of a friend. I had one h3ll of a time getting the new tires onto the wheels too! Is this normal?? I'm sure I need to use better tire levers first of all. What kind to you recommend?
