The depressed center of the rim serves a purpose. Break both beads, hold the beads together, and shift the tire on the rim so the beads are down in the depressed center. The beads opposite will clear the rim for easy removal. Installation of the new tire works the same. Wrestling a tire with stiff sidewalls and beads that don't want to cooperate makes the $20 seem a bargain.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
