    Is it hard to put a ZTR tire on the rim? Can you do it yourself or will I have to take it in to the shop?

    you COULD do it yourself, but a "garage" or tire Co. could do it in 5 minutes.

    Cant just use screwdrivers, you need tire spoons so you dont ruin the bead.

    You can do it,it's hard to break em off a rim but the local shops here charge like $10 bucks for two.

    I recently did my own on my wright stander. You need a set of tire irons and some grease to use on the rim. I took the rim off let the air out and laid it flat then stood on it and it broke the bead. As long as you can break the bead then you should be all set. My local guy charged $75 pr tire plus $15 for installation. Total $180. I found two brand new Carlisle Turf Masters on Ebay for $105 including shipping and put them on myself in under an hour.
