You can probably handle the tire yourself if you have a boom pole for the other tractor. Don't let the tire fall so you can roll it outside and pick it up with hook in one of the bolt holes and dump it on your trailer. It might weigh up to 500 lbs, so that will work ok if your Kubota can pick up that much. Keep kids and pets out of the way. If the Kubota can't pick it up, put it under a chain hoist and then back your trailer under the hoist. It really isn't too big a deal removing and replacing a loaded tire yourself if you are careful. If you have one person to help, it's quite easy. You will need a tire, a new tube, and new fluid most likely. You may need a rim. Once you get it off you will find rust on the rim, which you may be able to repair or grind away. If it is rusted bad at the valve hole, drill a new hole and weld a piece of steel over the old rusted hole (or buy a new rim). Tire, tube, fluid, labor maybe $400. Rim another 135 or so. More labor if they have to take it off the tractor and put it back on.

You are spot on with the cost. I called our local tire place and was quoted 325 for the tire, 75 for fluid and tube. Total 400.
I could lift the tires with the front end loader on the kubota. I did both rear tires on the kubota with no help, not too bad.
Weighed less than 500 though.

There are some tricks to putting the loaded wheel back on. Have someone 'feather' the jack as you get the first hole on the stud. Put a slick piece of vinyl under the tire so you can rotate it slightly as you maneuver it.
