Easy task if somebody breaks the tire down and puts in a new tube before you start.

There are 2 tube related things I noticed that she should have done differently.
1) Put a little air in the tube before stuffing it into the tire, not much, just enough to partly hold its shape.
2) After seating the beads, she should let ALL the air out of the tire and reinflate to the proper level. This allows the tube to straighten itself out and eliminate any wrinkles in the tube. Creases in the tube are a potential source of future leaks.

She should have also pointed out that the stem on the tube is not centered. The tube needs to be installed with the stem towards the stem hole side of the rim.

Somebody had to have already broke that bead for her. I have never seen one break with so little force as she gave it.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Well, the woman is a marvelous mechanic. I don't see any of the "cut away, let the guy do the job" blips in her videos. Her video about breaking the tractor to replace the clutch was inspiring!
On the other hand, she has a VERY complete set of tire tools, etc, at her disposal. Me, I break that bead by shoving the tire under the truck and using the screw jack against the tire and the truck bumper. At the same time, some of the steps are easier if you're a big fat guy like me. I mean, once it's broken, I can "Stomp" that tire off. I would like to have a set of those red clips, though!
Use soapy water instead of straight soap - it's slicker. ALWAYS remove the schrader valve from the stem before seating the bead. You're going to be over-inflating the tire, and the air can then escape quickly. This also allows the tube to relax and get into shape before final inflation.

Yeah, that's why the tire pulled back from the rim when she let the air out. The beads weren't completely seated.

I wouldn't go that far. It was once said she is an actress whose family makes these videos. I can't vouch for that so that may be wrong. With that said, and not wanting to hijack the thread, but it may be too late, here is an interesting video. Note what she is doing at 1:58 in the video that relates to the video in this post.

I have broken beads that have been mounted to rims for decades by laying the tire on the ground, placing a 5' plank on it with its edge 1" from the bead and slowly driving one truck tire up the plank. It'll break free with a cloud of rust dust flying up.
I then bought two Long breaker bars from harbor freight and ground it's edges smooth to use as tire spoons. Works well.
Incidentally for motorcycle tires I use a huge "C" clamp to break the bead.
Another tip when separating or mounting, dish soap is your friend. :wink:

Several years ago someone had some newly painted rims they didn't want to scratch and someone shared some photos using a plastic garbage bag as a way to protect the rim and create a slippery surface for the bead to clear the rim.

The whole purpose of the video is to be instructional which I think it did nicely. I for one am glad someone takes the time to create them.

Me too. I quit making them because I wasn't as good looking.
