Guys I have had a couple of punctures recently with my wheels...I'm a ex cyclist, so I know a bit about repairs...but how the hell do you get these wheels on and off...driving me mad.
Used the tyre levers, broke two of them, got the tyre off eventually...and there it has stayed, I can't get the s@dding thing back on.... any ideas would greatly be appreciated.

use some washing up liquid on tyre bead ,
failing that put tyre on wheel get as much of tyre on to rim than use a mallet to hammer it on,same way you put truck tyres on easy

I had the same problem with my trolley,after a lot of swearing and cursing to get the inner tube out I took it to national tyres in maidstone and he got the inner tube out in a jiffy and repaired the puncture.
All it cast me was a drink for the fella.

You cannot use tyre weld as it has an inner tube,these products are for tubeless tyres.

Cheers Chris I may just do that, if I have no success.....will try the washing up and brute force method first, then give up, then call Chris for a new one..[:D]

I had no trouble but I mend Motorbikes :))
I am happy to change tubes for forum members foc if you drop in I may even have a tube :))
Don't use washing up liquid it rots the rubber of the tube and tyre and can damage steel wheels also never go's away so can cause a tyre to slip on rim and destroy the tube !!
The home remedy is hand washing soap a bar not the liquid, wet it and apply with a paint brush slips tyres on and off as well as tyre soap which us pro's use

Guys you should try OKO its a substance used for the commercial lawn mowers the council use. They pick up thorns all the time. I've put it in my wheel barrow wheel and not had a puncture for 2 years. Its brilliant. I got mine off eBay

those products work just fine in tubed tyres,i used some in my mothers invalid scooter and it sealed it instantly,that was over a year ago.used some a couple weeks ago in my rideon mower tyre,that also sealed and has stayed up fine,again a tubed tyre.
