tips for removing tire from wheel at home

I'm trying to remove on side of tire off the wheel so i can check on the dynabeads if they are sticking or not. I can't for the life of me get the tire over the wheel. I have 2 tire spoons, 2 pry bars, and 2 long flat head screwdrivers. I can get two tire spoons to lift a good portion over the wheel but then i can't fit any of the pry bars or screwdrivers under the tire to lift it more. It's just too tight.

What do you guys do? I have no machine or tire changing so don't bother telling about those.

Its kinda an art. I take out the air stem first. Use a back side of an axe or spilting maul. And a wide cold chizzle. brake the beed down making use you take off the outside of the wheel first. Then (most inportant part) i steal the old ladies dish soap. Rub with my hand around the bead of the tire while on the rim and on the edge of the rim. This will make tire slip off with alot less work. Use your spoons i use two braker bars and slide both in. Once you get it started there are a few ways to do it. One is tap side of spoon and let it slide around like a tire machine. Other is to keep working the tire off with the tools (not the best way). Soap soap soap. Let me know how it works! I have never payed to change a tire bigger then a 30x&*x&*. Good luck.

I gave up on it. The damn spoons were chipping the paint off my brand new soft-8's. I had two towels between the spoon and rim edge and it still chipped it. NTB did the work for me
