    how do i pull the rim off of my mower? 36 metro, i see that it has a pressed ring on it with two washers which i removed but how does it come off from there? my tire came off and i guess that would be the easiest way to put it back on by taking it off (the rim) from the mower, unless any of you have a better way of putting the tire back on, i tried using a screwdriver but no way it would go.

    To get the rim off the mower you will need to take off the belt. There is also a scraper that rides in the groove of the pulley to clean debris out. this will have to be moved out of the way as well. As far as putting the tire back on the rim good luck. Small tires are tough. I would take it to a dealer and have him re-seat the rim and save a lot of aggravation.
