First Tire Change

Just performed my first tire change. Vega for Vega—no treads for this fat, flat, and slick guy.
Found this video tutorial that helped out a ton so I figured that I’d share:
As everyone says; breaking the bead was a pain in the ass—but there’s no need to bring it to a tire shop. Just put your back into it and follow the video tut tips.
Getting the tire on was a pain in the ass, too. But again; not impossible.
The hour or two investment beats the hell out of being without my board for several weeks while FM replaced it for me.
Tip: You’ll need an air compressor to seat the bead of the new tire. Nothing huge, I used my 6 gal pancake compressor and it did the job perfectly.
