Default Room to get tire off

New to me '88 funlite 17.
So I read a few threads about trying to get a tire off.

There is not enough room between the drum/bolts and the tire for it to drop out. No skirting to remove, just tried the rear curb side one to check for grease.
I got the tire off by letting out some air and had to lower the jack onto the tire a few times to get it back in!

I hope discount tire can get em off cuz I have 5 new tires coming.

I'll try driving the front tire onto blocks of wood to see if the rear tire will drop.

Hi Rabird, here’s what I use when I’m working on the 2000 model that I’ve got:

https://www.amazon.com/Trailer-Aid-l...dp/B07ZPJCHN5/

Drive one wheel up on it at a time, and it works like a charm. Maybe it will help you out too, though it’s still just a bit tight in there, everything goes on and off without too much complaining.

I had the same tire removal problem on my Tow-Lite 2200. I put a 1/2 inch lift kit in and that resolved things for me. I later wondered if the rubber in the torque arm suspensions is getting weak and letting the old trailers squat closer to the ground. Just an idea.
