How to Change a Lawn Mower Tire – Step-by-Step
Step 1: Disconnect the spark plug
Make sure the mower is packed on a flat surface, while the brakes are applied.
The ignition switch should also be turned off and the key removed.
Have your work gloves and goggles on; this will ensure your hands and eyes are protected.
Lift the hood of the riding mower, then discount the wire of the spark plug.
Step 2: Jack up the riding mower
Keep the mower from rolling.
Use a wedge on its front wheel.
Make sure you position underneath the frame, then jack the riding mower, and ensure the rear wheel is up above ground level.
A jack stand should be placed underneath the frame to help create enough support.
Once all is set and done, take the jack off the spot.
Step 3: Remove the rear wheel
Take off the cover of the axle. Pull off the retaining ring and the washer.
Take the tire off the axle.
Pull off the square key.
Step 4: Remove the tire
Take off the valve stem cap.
Take away the valve stem core; this will eliminate all the air in the tire.
Breakdown the bead and remove the tire off the rim.
On the other end, the tire should also be pry of the rim too.
Step 5: Breaking the Beads

Then break both outside and inside bead using an iron. But this should be done with caution, to avoid hitting the rim directly.
