    I have only done that with motorcyle tires, I think most car/truck tires may have too stiff of a bead to do this manually.

    It's easy with motorcycles, just like separating the men from the boys in the Navy: you use a prybar.

    With cars/trucks you need a bead-breaker which is a little larger.

    Tire shop, offer them five bucks. But how are you going to seat the new tire?

    Well I'd start with purchasing new wiper blades and attempting to gas up the vehicle. With a little luck not only your tires be removed from the rims, you should also have managed to reupholster your seats.
