    Push the bead it towards the rim well to break the bead lock.

    I find that you need to get hot sweaty and cross then mutter the magic works "why wont you come of you pile of c**p " while trying to get a leaver under the bead. works every time just watch for bending hte rim.

    If you are taking the tyre off to fit a new one just cut it with a stanley knife! Of leave the whole wheel in the airing cupboard over night and then ease the tyre off the next morning. It'll be much softer and more pliable!

    But cutting it off would be more fun!!! :twisted:
