Changing tires on D14

Hello. We have a D14 that has turf tires on it and want to change to traction-type tires for the winter. The traction-type tires are on their own rims already. We got the eight bolts off the hub but cannot remove the tire yet. Is there something to take off in the center of the wheel axle shaft, or do we need a special tool? Thanks for any help.

Rad; One quetion, did you remove the lugs from the center, smaller bolt circle, or the one's around the outer tire rim? It is not nessesary to remove the center only the outer rim. My D-14 only has six wheel locks around the rim. In any case, once the wheel lock bolts and nuts are removed, if the rim won't budge, have someone steady the rim, another hold a piece of 4x4 against the bead of the rim and hit the board with a 5lb hammer. This should cause the rim to break loose for removal. Don't hit the rim directly with the hammer, as it will bent and could crack the rim. And the person holding the rim and tire should brace themselves, if the rim comes off the center, they can be tough to hold up, due to there wieght and awkward shape. Be careful, tractor tire and rims are HEAVY and if the tire is filled with calcium it will be EXTREMELY heavy. Once they are off, roll the other rims next to the center and lift it with a long bar while slipping it onto the wheel center, align the wheel lock notchs with the bolt hole and install eccentric bolts and nuts. be sure wheel locks are evenly tightened around rim then torque down the lock nuts. Good Luck. John W. P.S. If you will be installing AG type tires remember they are directional, mount so the rotation arrows point to the front of the tractor when they are at the top, they are on the side wall of the tire.

Once the eight bolts are out, the rim should come off. After years of being in the same place, it may take significant force to get the rim loose, however. There is very little clearnce between the hub and the center of the rim. Rust can make the hub and rim seem like one! Taking the tire off the rim is another major task. The Allis rims have only one step down instead of two like Farmalls and John Deeres.

Assuming you are trying to get it apart at the center axle flange where the wheel bolts are and not at the cam locks, here is the method I used.
I rigged up a wheel puller using two large carriage bolts through the empty wheel weight bolt holes in the disk part of the wheel and then through a bar with holes which was actually a Ford drawbar from an 8N, the kind that goes in the 3 point hitch when there is no regular drawbar. Then I put a chuck of 4x4 between the bar and the end of the axle and tightened the 2 bolts until the wheel popped off. I also soaked the wheel to axle joint the day before. Any heavy bar would do. You could sub a short chuck of large pipe for the 4x4.

I had previously tried the beating it loose method.
IT took a tremendous amount of force. The 4x4 was crushing.
