Would be great if you have someone nearby with experience with these wheels to coach you the first time. Otherwise, it is very likely you will have a difficult time breaking the bead and also preventing a tube pinch when you reassemble the wheels. Also note there is a notch in the wheel halves for the tube stem.

Don't forget to safety wire the caliper bolts when you put everything back together. Use a new cotter pin on the axle nut. The pin may need a slight curve in it so you can feed it through the holes in the axle.

This job can be frustrating the first time but after some help it will be much easier next time.

Harbor Freight has an inexpensive bead breaker that works like a charm on our tires:
