How to replace tires?

Next question - How do you seat the %[email protected] replacement tubeless tires? I got them on, but I cannot get them to seat and hold air. They won't pop out to the rim. Tubeless tires are the work of Satan.:banghead3

OK, I got the tires off by cuting through the rubber then grinding through the steel belts with a Dremel
How do you unmount and remount the front tires on the rims? Should it really be done by a tire shop?

Replacing the front tires seemed simple, but I did not expect the original Goodyear tires to have 4 steel wires in the rims. They are semi-rusted to the rims.

Another way of breaking beads...well actually two ways. Take one of the old metal car ramps, set it on the tire close to the rim, then just drive your car up the ramp. The other way that works well is jack up the front of a car or truck with disk brakes, take the tire off, slide the tire you want to break the bead on under the rotor and lower the vehicle slowly. I've used the second one alot and haven't had an issue rotors afterwards.
