Hi The bolt deal is correct, What ever you do don"t break a tap or bolt off in the removal holes if they are full of rust,and need cleaning right through.
I had a used 1135 tractor here somebody did that to on an inner wheel I needed off. to do that I got the dual off and one bolt in the good thread hole
then had to jack the opposite to the bolt against the cab mount with a 20 ton jack. with an outer wheel if its in close you got no space to work with like that, if anythings messed up. Pounding a big crow bar in to pop it's not easy either, tried that also
You could also just remove the rim/tire with outer bolts and leave the hub if grass or hay won't wrap on the hub when working in the field if it's that tight.
I got lucky with mine, just go careful with the bolts and threads.
When I took mine off and fitted my duals back on, I put a block under the inner wheel to take the weight off the dual a bit. so I wasn't fighting the weight of the tractor pushing the tire down into the ground, you will need a loader tractor to lift/ support a whole wheel/cast hub. that thing is incredibly heavy and will squish a guy in a heart beat if it gets away on you. Local guy got killed by a dual wheel a few years ago, when it fell on him while working with it.
