Been a few years since I was having so many flats due to a certain brands tires cracking in the sidewalls, but at that time it was $250 to boot the sidewall, replace the tube and pump fluid on a 18.4R30

$60 was pumping fluid

The best deal I could find was 200$ including new tube and pumping the fluid so I didnít feel to bad about that . Funny how one guy will drive near 100 miles round trip and be 200$ cheaper than a guy that had to drive 20 miles round trip

Gotta ask. What kind of spoons are you using? Probably not the ones used for car tires.
I can guess you get them off starting at the top with the spoons. What I can't see is how you get the leverage to put them back on when vertical. It would be tough laying flat on the ground.

The last time we had a farm call for a tire, we ended up with a new 15.5/38 tube and tire.. it took em the better part of half a day, they pumped fluid both ways and had to add some.. the total bill came in just over a grand.. needless to say we dont call for farm service unless right up against it...

I do the same with the wiper fluid; Amen to having proper spoons, can't imagine trying to change one without them.

For all y'all that do your own, that's great. It's not something that just anyone can do, though.
I've done it many times and will probably do it again many more times in the future, but from personal experience these large rear tractor tires are HEAVY and usually put up a FIGHT.

It takes practice and the knowledge of how to do it. But then on the other hand I have done tire repair for a living so I learned. I still do my own tractor tires but have also got my shop set up to work in them. I have an air powdered bead breaker tool plus the correct tire spoons etc.

Iíve been thinking of buying a set of spoons just for the odd tire I can fix or want to try and fix . I am also considering putting the valve stem at the bottom and letting all the liquid rust run out on the ground and get as much out of the tires As I can so I donít have that to contend with anymore but I do like the extra weight until I can get some cast weights bought . You guys that know how to do tires are flat out handy I love to watch you do em itís amazing how easy you make it look

By the way duct tape will not seal a hole in an inner tube even if your just using it as a butt cushion

What works better is taking an old tube and cutting it so the new tube sits inside of it and thorns etc. take a lot longer to poke a hole in the new tube

If I need weight and use fluid I use wiper fluid and then reuse it and use a drill pump to remove it and put it back in. Having the correct spoons goes a long way in not harming a tube by the way

I like to do my own tire changing. It is good exercise and sometimes a good challenge. I have all of the tools except a pump. Don't have many with fluid anyway. I worked at a dealership that sold a lot of Goodyears back in the 70's. Sometimes the wife gets involved. That's when you know you have a good one!!

50 dollar 'service call' plus mileage over 20 miles;40 dollar flat repair,10 dollar calcium pump(both ways). You usually get hung with buying a new tube if it's more than a 'pin hole'.A simple 'on farm' flat repair is usally less 200.00,less 'parts'.

Around a month ago, $200 got me from the tire shop 14 miles away: on farm call to replace damaged inner tube in 15.5 x 38 tire. Included new tube and removing perhaps 50 gal of calcium which I did NOT replace in the new tube (going to rim gard or plain old wheel weights in the future).

I don't remember the exact dollar amount ? It was not too bad. But what I do remember when calling around for estimates I was not told about the service call charge that would be on top of what he quoted. So be real specific when asking about a price as to what all it includes !

I was quoted $500 from one outfit and $600 from another to come out, remove the old tires, and install new tires I have on hand, on a pair of 20.8x38s. That included them supplying new Firestone tubes. If they had to pump calcium, it was extra, but I think the tires on this tractor are dry.

We take the tire and rim into a tire shop. No fluid, remove tire cost $20, to remount tire and tube $20. Can't beat the price but it might take a couple days to get them back.

Just the cost of whatever needs to be replaced or repaired. I do all my own labor & fluid changes. Always have, but now have most of the necessary equipment acquired. Yes, I'm a cheap @*&%$

Last time it was about $500 for both rears on an IH 1086 30 miles from their shop. It was worth it to me because I have not the practiced skills, equipment and too old to do it myself.

Last I knew it was costing me $200 for them to come out 10 miles to replace a tube and pump fluid. Didn't take too long for me to realize how it was cheaper and faster to do my own. I fact I just replaced this rim on my SM.

I got it at auction. But it was St Johns Mi Dec2019. I've been watching this wheel and caught it just before it was ready to blow. It was still half full of fluid I haven't put back in yet.

And summer 2019 with the loader I use mostly to feed round bales.

I was raised on a JD620 and in my teens used a 720. The 620 still has a JD45 on it. I got another for my M and SM added the cyl to tilt the bale spear. It's done from manure work to raising trusses to lifting JD404 engine for mt 4430

On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
