I am trying to remove my Stan's "The Crow" tires and was wondering what I need to do to take them off my rims? I want to replace them w/ Panaracer Fire XC Pros (w/ tubes).. Any advice would be appreciated..:thumbsup:

What's the problem ? Beads are broken ? Are you using tire levers ?

just like any other tubed tire, let the air out loosen the bead and use your tool to get it off.
if its fairly new then the sealant will still be in there but if its been on for a few months it will be dried out.

I just removed mine last night from my brand new Instinct. I have removed and installed many road and MTB tires over the years but these were the first tubeless tires I've ever touched. They seemed to be very tight and a bit of a pita to remove with levers. I have the park levers that have a small hook on one end of the lever so I can get the lip of one lever under the tire bead and then hook the other end of the lever onto a spoke as I use the second lever to begin removing the tire as usual. A bit more cussing involved much like some of those high pressure road tires from my past. I am running SB 8's.

oh...
well you may want to look into tubeless as an option.

i run hutchinson airlights with a cup and a half of stans. so thats about 90g of sealant or the weight of a paper thin butyl tube from maxxis and i have puncture protection. i havent had a single flat on tubeless.
