    Yeah just done a set of BFG AT's with an hilift, move the tyre round a couple of times and pour some washingup liquid on to the tyre to lube the rim of the tyre. Oh and if it dunt move straight away fook orf and have a cuppa while ya waiting. Gravity will win in the end.

    and you might need to hit the rim seal with a lump hammer if theyve been on there for a long time

    No worries mate, I'll take them as is, and get them popped off; I've got to take them to a fitter to get them put on my rims anyway, so as long as you don't need them in the next week or so, I'll get them back to you OK :) call you tomorrow and let you know my ETA

    Tite bastid 50p will get ya a set of valve caps with the valve key inthe top or £2.49 will get yu a valve tool from Halfrauds. and you can remove the valve completly then. Makes it easier to reseat em on the rim if refitting em.
