    Uh-huh, yeah no. Ain't happening with the Coops. I think I pm'd Eddie 10 times trying to figure out what in the hell I was doing wrong. They are just a bitch. There's a sweet spot angle that once you find it they'll pop on, but not without a fight.
    Itís definitely all about the angle. Got to get one lip just inside the bead but still have the wheel as flat as possible. Otherwise itís a fight youíll never win.

    I got them on the KMC XD231 wheels like Eddies no problem, wheel on a piece of cardboard, little lube (I used conduit lube for pulling wire), get it started in the drop center, then just jumped onto the tire with my hands and knees... I am a big guy maybe a little extra weight helps.

    They look great on your Jeep, polished and white is a nice looking combo. I hope you have some video of your install technique. ;-)

    I got the technique from watching youtube (below at about 2:00)... It seemed easier than the way Eddie shows in his video because I am a klutz, I'd likely twist an ankle trying to balance standing in the wheel.

    I've mounted thousands of tires but had a machine to do most of them, & most of the ones done by hand were equipment or semi tires where there was no worry of scratching wheels with tire spoons. Because no shop I ever worked at would have allowed us to mount them I had only done one other set of beadlocks, some 30x9.5 r15 BFG KR2's on Walker Evans for my RZR...

    I mounted my 40 inch coops on my ATX Slabs and did not have much trouble at all.

    40's are load range C aren't they? The 37's are E and I believe that's what causes the difficulties.

    Are the Cooper 37s E? My Nitto 35s were E but my 37s are D.

    Yup, I shoulda noted that ^^.

    I went with the 13.50's not only because they were wider, but they were also significantly cheaper.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
